Response to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget’s 1997 Statistical Policy Directive No. 15
CSPI's initial proposals for updating race and ethnicity statistical standards
Since 1997, much has changed about the diversity of our nation, and, as such, there is a need for more refined data collection practices regarding race and/or ethnicity. As a science-based advocacy organization that relies on this type of information to inform our work, the Center for Science in the Public Interest looks forward to more granular standards that will allow us to more precisely advance a more equitable and just food system through our efforts.
