Bruce Lambert’s Presentation at the North American Transportation Statistics Interchange
In June, Mr. Bruce Lambert made a presentation at the North American Transportation Statistics Interchange meeting.  The attendees consisted of government data program managers and specialists from across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. 

Mr. Lambert spoke on the problems associated with federal data programs, from the points of both data collection and data users.  He then discussed some of the models being developed under the NETS program, and how these models ultimately depend upon the quality of the available information.
