Project Scope
The National Research Council through its Committee on National Statistics (CNSTAT) will convene a panel of experts to review methods for measuring and collecting pay information from U.S. employers for the purpose of administering Section 709 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended.  The panel will evaluate currently available and potential data sources, methodological requirements, and appropriate statistical techniques for the measurement and collection of employer pay data.  The panel will consider suitable data collection instruments, procedures for reducing reporting burdens on employers, and confidentiality, disclosure, and data access issues.  It will issue a report with findings and recommendations on what data the EEOC should collect to enhance wage discrimination law enforcement efforts, which will assist the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in formulating regulations at the conclusion of an 18-month study.
