Abstract In 2007, the Governments Division faced several challenges after receiving the final report from the Committee on National Statistics. In this paper, we examine the efforts of the Governments Division (GOVS) to improve the quality of its statistical programs, as well as the dissemination of an increasing number of products to its data users. Progress towards addressing the 21 recommendations from the Committee on National Statistics (CNStat) is discussed. The Background (Section 2.0) covers the recent history of the challenges discussed in the paper. Beginning with Section 3.0, we examine the progress on addressing CNStats recommendations on data use and data users of state and local government statistics. Section 4.0 discusses at the progress towards improving the data quality and the improvement of statistical methods. In Section 5.0, we examine issues of dissemination, which include analysis, website presentation, and timeliness. In Section 6.0, we consider the Committee's concerns about the Census Bureau's Challenges for the Future. In the Section 7.0, we present a more updated view of our challenges and future research that we plan to do to address those challenges.
