    • Abstract:
      The subcommittee reviewed training and development at its six member agencies — Bureau of the Census, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Energy Information Administration, National Agricultural Statistics Service, NationalCenter for Education Statistics, and the National Center for Health Statistics. The information gleaned was thought to be relevant for a broader audience; it is provided, in Appendix A, in the form of case studies. To provide more comprehensive and consistent information on the topic of its investigation, the subcommittee conducted a survey of the eighteen federal statistical agencies referenced above from data maintained by them. Data items for the survey were suggested by the subcommittee's review of agency programs. The subcommittee developed a set of questions on the employee's perception of training at their agency for use in an organizational climate survey conducted at nine of the federal statistical agencies. Three other work products emerged from subcommittee review and discussions. (1) A literature review on survey and statistical training was conducted, resulting in an annotated bibliography appended to this report. (2) A review of agency programs highlighted employee development programs at NASS, the Bureau of the Census, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These programs, documented in the report, provide models for employee development. (3) This review of agency programs took note of the fact that statistical agencies also provide training to individuals who are not their own employees(including interviewers, data users, data providers, and employees of international, EXECUTIVE SUMMARY - 2 - TRAINING FOR THE FUTURE state, and local government organizations). A description of these training initiatives — thought to be informative to other statistical agencies — is included in the report also.
