Amstat News invited John Phillips—associate commissioner of the Office of Research, Evaluation, and Statistics in the Social Security Administration—to respond to questions so readers could learn more about him and the agency he leads.
Naomi Goldstein—deputy assistant secretary for planning, research, and evaluation at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families—writes about her agency’s evaluation policy.
