AERA Partners on Count on Stats Campaign Promoting the Value of Data and Evidence

January 2018

Count on Stats, a campaign designed to raise awareness of the importance, reliability, and trustworthiness of the federal statistical system among the public, key stakeholders, and influencers of the system, was formally launched on January 30. AERA is partnering with the American Statistical Association (ASA) and an initial group of six other national associations on the initiative.

“A strong federal statistical system is critical for researchers, policymakers, business leaders, investors, and others who rely on accessible, trustworthy, and comprehensive data,” said AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine.  “Without high-quality and publicly accessible data and statistics, effective evidence-based policymaking is impossible and the nation’s scientific and economic competitiveness are placed at grave risk.

“It is imperative that the federal statistical system is fully supported by Congress, the administration, and the American people,” said Levine.
