About the Council of Professional Associations on Federal Statistics
Founded in 1981, the Council of Professional Associations on Federal Statistics (COPAFS) represents researchers, educators, public health professionals, civic groups, and businesses that rely on the quality and accessibility of statistics that can only be effectively collected by the federal government.
Our goal: Advancing Excellence in Federal Statistics
What COPAFS does:
Provides government policy decision makers with information that demonstrates the value of federal statistics and the imperative of a strong federal statistical system.
Organizes forums in which federal statisticians and agency representatives interact with the users of their statistics;
Conducts independent, third-party evaluations of statistical tools, processes and accessibility options, and prepares white papers;
Holds seminars, workshops, and webinars on challenges and opportunities facing groups that rely on federal statistics and those facing the federal agencies that produce them.
