Continental breakfast served buffet-style.  

Two informal rounds of discussion will be offered during breakfast, starting at  8:15.  Grab a plate and a cup, and join the circle.
  • "Publish or perish" (Frank Ridzi):  Many in the indicator field are under pressure to publish; others just have important things to say and would like a venue for it.  CIC would like to start a discussion on what is needed, who is interested, and what is would mean.  
  • Census Bureau focus group: Focus on Economic Data (Rebecca Hutchinson): Demand for more timely and more detailed official economic statistics produced by the Economic Directorate of the United States Census Bureau is increasing along with costs of traditional survey data collection, and a changing economic landscape, making it challenging for the Economic Directorate to meet its data users’ needs. If you are, or could be, a user of economic data or would like to see new products using alternative data sources, this discussion is your chance to let the Bureau know how products could be improved to be of more value.  The Economic Directorate is also interested in learning what other data products are used by communities across the country.
