    Statement on Change to Definition of ‘Agricultural Products’ in Reporting Trade Data | site |




    (Information contained in U.S. Department of Agriculture [USDA] press release dated: February 19, 2021)


    Washington, Feb. 19, 2021 - - USDA and the Department of Commerce decided in December 2020 to change the way they define “agricultural products” when reporting international trade data.

    Census Bureau Statement on Redistricting Data Timeline | site |



    (Information contained in U.S. Census Bureau press release dated: February 12, 2021) February 12, 2021 - - The U.S. Census Bureau announced today that it will deliver the Public Law 94-171 redistricting data to all states by Sept. 30, 2021. COVID-19-related delays and prioritizing the delivery of the apportionment results delayed the Census Bureau’s original plan to deliver the redistricting data to the states by March 31, 2021. Different from previous censuses, the Census Bureau will deliver the data for all states at once, instead of on a flow basis. This change has been made because of COVID-19-related shifts in data collection and in the data processing schedule and it enables the Census Bureau to deliver complete and accurate redistricting data in a more timely fashion overall for the states. The redistricting data includes counts of population by race, ethnicity (Hispanic or Lat...

    Data spotlight shows reported losses up 50 percent from 2019


    (Information contained in Federal Trade Commission [FTC] press release dated: February 10, 2021)

    More consumers than ever report falling prey to romance scammers, according to new Federal Trade Commission data that show consumers reported losing a record $304 million to the scams last year. A newly released data spotlight shows that the amount consumers reported losing to romance scammers is up about 50 percent since 2019, and has increased more than fourfold since 2016. Scammers draw people in using pictures stolen from around the internet, building false personas that seem just real enough to be true, but always having a reason never to meet in person. Eventually, the supposed suitor will ask for money from the unwitting consumer. The impact can be major, with the
