HHS Guidelines for Ensuring and Maximizing the Quality, Objectivity, Utility, and Integrity of Information Disseminated to the Public. VII. Influential Scientific, Financial, and Statistical Information


The Guidelines apply to certain statistical information disseminated by ACF in view of the potential substantial impact on important public policies. Since statistical information for major ACF programs such as foster care, child abuse and neglect, TANF, etc., are provided by States, ACF will work closely with the States to assure the completeness, reliability, and integrity of the data and the transparency of methodology and analytical techniques.
