Full text: Notes on Social Science Policy

2. Governments should make more use of social scientists and 
social science research, so as to he able to base their 
decisions on better information, and to adapt the adminis 
tration to the needs of todays society and the possibilities 
of present techniques. A necessary condition for this is 
the inclusion of social scientists in the government 
administration itself. 
3. Coordination between the data producing agencies (statistical 
offices etc.) and the social scientists should be furthered 
so as to adapt the production of data to the needs of the 
social scientists. International cooperation in this field 
is very important (in a positive sense this has been shown 
by System of National Accounts). 
4. The diffusion of social science methods and results between 
countries should be furthered, so as to reduce the great 
differences in the level of teaching and research which 
exists in some of those subjects. It should again be 
stressed that international organisations such as OECD and 
UNO have achieved good results in this direction by 
"diffusion” of the System of National Accounts.
