Recent Presentations About CBO's Cost Estimates and Data Visualization

June 19, 2014

Last week, I attended a meeting in Ottawa, Ontario, of the Global Network of Parliamentary Budget Offices, which was sponsored by the World Bank Institute and attended by representatives of the Philippines, Nigeria, Thailand, Uganda, the Dominican Republic, Vietnam, Ghana, Cambodia, and the host country of Canada.

At a seminar on independent budget analysis and transparency, I presented two talks on CBO's work, as shown in the following slides on CBO's Cost Estimates and Telling Visual Stories About Data. CBO's Deputy Director, Bob Sunshine, originally presented this material at the OECD's 6th Annual Meeting of Parliamentary Budget Officials and Independent Fiscal Institutions held in Jerusalem in early April.

Peter Fontaine is CBO's Assistant Director for Budget Analysis.
