Policy Commission Seeks Public Comment

The Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking has issued a request for comments on "strategies to increase the availability and use of government data."  Congress established the Commission to study whether and how data across the federal government could be combined for policy research while protecting privacy.  The Commission seeks comment on several issues including privacy risks, access to data, and whether a single clearinghouse should be created.  In testimony before the Commission, EPIC President Marc Rotenberg emphasized safeguards for personally identifiable information,  following EPIC’s work on Re-identification and The Census and Privacy.  Comments to the Commission are due on November 14, 2016.
