Federal Agencies with Statistical Programs

The Federal Committee on Statistical Methodology (FCSM) is an interagency committee dedicated to improving the quality of Federal statistics. The first meeting of the FCSM was held in the summer of 1975. The letter of invitation from Maria E. Gonzalez, founder of the FCSM, said that "The FCSM will focus on recommending standards for statistical methodology to be followed by Federal statistical agencies. The Committee shall investigate problems which affect the quality of Federal Statistical data, as well as make suggestions for improving statistical methodology in Federal agencies." The Office of Management and Budget invites individual statisticians, economists or managers working in the Executive Branch to participate as members of the FCSM based on their particular experience.

Here is a list of federal agencies with statistical programs.
