Collecting Data on Governments — Innovation at Work!

Written by:

Today government finance, public pensions, education spending, and taxes are hot issues and in the information age – where information is readily available and more easily monitored and measured – statistics tell the stories. 

The U.S. Census Bureau’s Governments Division collects data on federal, state and local government and constantly researches new ways to make data collection more efficient and the data more precise.

On March 15, 2012, the Council of Professional Associations on Federal Statistics held a workshop on censuses and surveys of governments.  Attendees at the conference included representatives from academia, the private sector, several federal statistical agencies, and members of a 2007 Committee on National Statistics panel on government statistics.

Governments Division staff presented their research, as well as planned research, on a host of topics.  We believe many readers will find this research to be of interest:
