The President's Reorganization Project for the Federal Statistical System in 1979 recommended establishment of an Office of Statistical Policy in the Executive Office of the President, functioning as a separate agency reporting to the president and accountable to the Congress. That office would be the focus of federal statistical coordination and policy. The Final Report of the project, which follows, describes the rationale and historic background for the project's recommendations and the mission and functions of the proposed office. Comments on the report are provided, as is a description of subsequent legislation that has resulted in statistical reorganization that differs from that recommended by the project and approved by the president.
