Labor Department May Change Way Inflation Survey Data Is Collected

John Crudele writes:
The inflation survey might undergo another change. Currently, field reps for the monthly inflation survey, the Consumer Expenditures Survey, leave a booklet at households, in which someone fills in purchases.
But if Census workers want to be dishonest — or just meet a quota for completed surveys — the paper document could be mishandled.
Census is now contemplating the use of an electronic device that will be left with families being surveyed about household purchases.
