The Council received a report on the interim meeting for the Social Science Planning Team (SSPT), which occurred by teleconference November 6, 2019. The Council had extensive discussion about the charge of the SSPT, the current work on strategizing revisions to the Economic Data Reporting (EDR) programs, and the SSPT’s Data Gap Analysis. The Council directed the SSPT to focus its immediate efforts on the revisions to EDR requirements with the primary objectives of improving utility to inform Council decision documents and increasing data quality. In response, the SSPT intends to host a public EDR workshop in addition to its next in-person meeting. Meeting information will be posted at: https://www.npfmc.org/committees/social-science-planning-team/
