Dear Ranking Member Davis:
The American Sociological Association appreciates the opportunity to share our views about the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS), an innovation that has greatly benefited social science researchers, policy makers, and the communities they both serve.
The Council of the American Sociological Association (ASA) is profoundly disturbed by the possibility that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit will uphold Judge William G. Young’s recent ruling that personally identifiable research data collected as part of Boston College’s “Belfast Project” must be turned over to British law enforcement through the U.S. Department of Justice.
The ASA and National Science Foundation have jointly published a summary of an important workshop on the issue of climate change research. It examines a critically important dimension of earth's climate variation: Basic research on social determinants affecting global climate change.
