The following bibliography was prepared by a subcommittee of the Federal Committee on Statistical Methodology (FCSM). This subcommittee on Statistical Training and Career Development of Government Statisticians is preparing a report documenting programs in existence, opportunities for collaboration, and statistical education needs of federal agencies. The subcommittee chair, Cynthia Clark, would appreciate suggestions of additional references. The bibliography will be annotated during Fall 1996.
