In uncertain times, we need evidence. Federal statistics are vital sources. Researchers, businesses, governments, and nonprofits rely on this data, and we need to do a better job of telling policymakers that investment in data is important. APDU is pleased to announce a training that will give stakeholders in federal statistics the tools they need to educate policymakers on the value of their data.
How can you better understand:
the messages that resonate best with policymakers about the value of Federal data?
the most effective way to engage with policymakers to make the case for statistical data?
the needs of a broader community of federal data users and supporters?
