The Committee's advice on statistical methodology, research needed, and other technical matters related to the collection, tabulation, and analysis of Federal economic statistics helps the department to maintain and improve the accuracy, timeliness, and relevance of its data. Committee members are individuals with demonstrated professional abilities and qualifications whose experience is directly relevant to the functions and tasks performed by the agency. Therefore, they are exceptionally qualified to advise the agency with regard to economic concepts and theory, new and developing statistical techniques, and emerging technologies that may help to accomplish the department's goals. In addition, the Committee's joint sponsorship (by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Bureau of the Census, and the Bureau of Economic Analysis) has led to improved communication, cooperation, and coordination of methodologies among the three sponsoring agencies. 2cb3b581-aa33-4f6e-a631-4d7386d142f1 Recommandations Not Available bd9139f8-b9fa-45cb-ac31-7ce5749145e7 Make, Accept, Implement 8aaf0c7b-235a-4523-8ecf-cd7670002cf8 12886ff2-a33f-455c-ab21-e9521fa099be Recommendations Made Number Federal Economic Statistics Advisory Committee Department of Commerce Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 The Committee functions solely as an advisory body to the Agencies, on topics selected by the Agencies in consultation with the Committee chairperson.
