Building on our post from a couple of days ago, Outgoing U.S. Census Bureau director Robert Groves just posted on the Census Bureau Director’s blog “A Future Without Key Social and Economic Statistics for the Country” in which he simply *blasts* the US House decision to pass the Webster-Lankford amendment to HR 5326 appropriations for the Departments of Commerce and Justice, Science, and Related Agencies for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2013
“This bill devastates the nation’s statistical information about the status of the economy and the larger society. modern societies need current, detailed social and economic statistics. the US is losing them.”
