Description:

The Politics of Numbers is the first major study of the social and political forces behind the nation’s statistics. In more than a dozen essays, its editors and authors look at the controversies and choices embodied in key decisions about how we count―in measuring the state of the economy, for example, or enumerating ethnic groups. They also examine the implications of an expanding system of official data collection, of new computer technology, and of the shift of information resources into the private sector.
