“Introducing the DDI Metadata Standards in Support of Transparency in Federal Statistics” COPAFS Webinar: March 16th at 12pm EST

Dan Gillman will be presenting a Webinar on Wednesday, March 16th, 2022 at 12pm EST for the U.S. Council of Professional Associations on Federal Statistics (COPAFS).  The Webinar is entitled “Introducing the DDI Metadata Standards in Support of Transparency in Federal Statistics.”  Since 1980, COPAFS has provided an open dialog between those who use federal statistics in professional contexts and the Federal statistical agencies that produce those statistics for the public good. Supporting organizations include professional associations, businesses, research institutes, and others that help to produce and/or use federal statistics.

Dan is a member of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Panel on Transparency and Reproducibility in Federal Statistics that released the November 2021 report, Transparency in Statistical Information for the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics and All Federal Statistical Agencies.  The Report provides an opportunity for the DDI Alliance to position itself as the source of many of the metadata standards needed by the federal statistical agencies to achieve transparency.  Dan is also very active in several DDI activities, including most recently initiating and chairing the DDI Glossary Working Group.
