Official Statement of The ADOS Advocacy Foundation, Inc. On OMB Updates To SPD 15,
Race and Ethnicity Data Standards

Who can disaggregate? Everyone else except American Descendants of Slavery.

The White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) announced the results of their formal review of how federal agencies collect and report on data on race and ethnicity.

We at the ADOS Advocacy Foundation (ADOS AF) and ADOS Empowerment Project (ADOS EP) are deeply disappointed with the OMB’s Notice of Decision. At the same time, the OMB agreed to require the disaggregation of data on other groups. Yet, the Bureau has called for “more study” on whether ADOS have the right to see their collectively tumultuous lived experience belied by the data. See our full official statement here.
