Interview with Federal News Radio

I was interviewed this week on Federal News Radio by Tom Temin. Tom and I discussed the mission of BLS and the other federal statistical agencies. We talked about the challenges the agencies face in providing useful, relevant information as technology, our economy and society, and the needs of our customers change rapidly. We also talked about efforts by BLS and the other statistical agencies to increase public understanding of the power and impact of statistics and to encourage more young people to choose statistics as a profession. I invite you to  listen to the interview, which is available on the Federal Drive Show blog.
