This is a discussion of two presentations at the "Seminar on New Directions in Statistical Methodology", sponsored by the Council of Professional Associations in Federal Statistics. The first presentation, by George Duncan, gave an overview of a report, Private Lives and Public Policies, prepared by a panel of the Committee on National Statistics at the National Research Council. The second, by Nancy Kirkendall, described materials in a recently issued working paper of the Federal Committee on Statistical Methodology on Statistical Disclosure Limitation Methodology.
