Strategic Directions of the Office of Social and Economic Data Analysis

At OSEDA we strive to transform data into useful information. We believe the construction of meaningful information is an inherently collaborative enterprise. We believe "information" arises from "data" when facts are focused honestly on questions of interest to audiences, especially for decision-making. Therefore, we strive to engage our audiences seeking communication from many perspectives.
