National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine

For A Committee On National Statistics Panel

Overview
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine provide independent scientific advice to the government. Its Committee on National Statistics will convene an expert panel on an integrated system of household income, consumption, and wealth statistics, currently produced by multiple agencies. Available series are conceptually inconsistent and insufficiently accurate, timely, or detailed (geographically or demographically) for policy or research. Series differ as to the extent of inequality and other measures of households’ economic well-being, clouding policy debates and public understanding. The panel’s report will recommend steps toward an integrated system that can better illuminate households’ economic circumstances, as well as inequities in their ability to achieve an adequate standard of living and provide education and homeownership opportunities for their children.
