The Wall Street Journal (registration/subscription required) reported yesterday on the Bush budget. Interesting for researchers is the proposed increases in funding for statistical gathering. The Census Bureau could get an additional $433 million “to prepare for the 2010 census” and to “beef up the American Community Survey.” Bureau of Labor Statistics is down for an extra $36 million, Bureau of Economic Analysis for a $6 million increase, and the Energy Information Administration for one of $20 million. For librarians and researchers, more statistics can only be a good thing. Now, can we please reinstate the EPA libraries and collections?
