U.S. Census Bureau Director Robert Groves has named 10 new members and a chairwoman to the Census Bureau's Scientific Advisory Committee, which provides advice on the design and implementation of Census Bureau programs.
“We are excited to add such an array of expertise to our existing committee,” Groves said. “These are leading voices from the scientific community, offering the kind of experience and outside perspective that the Census Bureau needs as we adjust to the future of data collection while enhancing our traditional commitment to statistical quality.”
The new members are:
Groves appointed Guillermina Jasso as chairwoman of the Census Scientific Advisory Committee. Jasso, a sociology professor at New York University, was the founding director of the Methods Workshop at New York University (1991-1997), the founding director of the Theory Workshop at the University of Iowa (1988-1991) and co-founder of the Life Course Center at the University of Minnesota.
Jasso heads the 20 members of the Census Scientific Advisory Committee, who each serve three-year terms. The committee meets twice a year to address policy, research and technical issues relating to a full range of Census Bureau programs and activities, including communications, decennial, demographic, economic, field operations, geographic, information technology and statistics.
