Comments on two papers delivered before the American Economic Association at New York, December 27, 1961. Both papers (one by Dr. Harvey Perloff and the other by Prof. Werner Hirsh) attempt to increase the extent and type of information collected on urban and regional affairs. Hirsch has specific suggestions for accommodating the information in a single framework, whereas Perloff suggests proceeding on four interrelated fronts. 4 pp.
