IASSIST has been on the leading edge of data dissemination and access issues, critically examining developments in electronic delivery and privacy/confidentiality concerns. "Data advocacy" has included promoting statistical literacy among data professionals and the public; participating in the development of metadata standards for data; and working on solutions for preservation and archiving. The 2004 conference will build on this work with sessions that address various aspects of data advocacy.
