On August 30, 2022, the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) announced additional information about their formal review process for OMB’s statistical standards for collecting race and ethnicity data. Refer to OMB Launches New Public Listening Sessions on Federal Race and Ethnicity Standards Revision for detailed information.
Per OMB’s announcement, there are two ways for the public to share their perspectives and input with the Interagency Technical Working Group:
  1. The Working Group, through OMB, will solicit public input on its recommended proposal for revisions to Directive No. 15 through a Federal Register Notice. If you’d like to be notified when the Federal Register Notice is published, please send a request to join our mailing list to  Statistical_Directives@omb.eop.gov.
  1. The Working Group will hold virtual, bi-monthly listening sessions to hear directly from members of the public. These listening sessions will begin starting Thursday, September 15, 2022. To schedule a listening session, please send a brief email expressing interest to  Statistical_Directives@omb.eop.gov.

Please direct all questions directly to OMB via their email address:  Statistical_Directives@omb.eop.gov.
