Maloney Introduces Legislation to Protect the Sanctity of Scientific Data
“Statistics should tell us the truth, not what politicians want to hear,” said Maloney. “If we don’t have objective data with which to make decisions on education and poverty, people will suffer from misguided government programs. We need to live by the old saying: ‘the numbers don’t lie.’”
Last year, Maloney and Clay requested an investigation by the General Accounting Office (GAO) as to why the Census Bureau made its decision to break with tradition by releasing its annual poverty estimates on in Suitland, MD, rather than at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
