Mathematica works closely with its partners to design policy solutions intended to improve the lives of people with disabilities. Disability policy addresses cross-cutting issues, and though the aspirations of people with disabilities keep pace with the opportunities created by advances in medicine and technology, policy often lags behind—in part because of inadequate information. At Mathematica, we strive to provide the information our partners need to design and implement programs and policies that not only maintain a strong safety net for people with disabilities, and but also help them achieve self-sufficiency and economic independence.

Our dedication to advancing disability policy research, data collection, and program support is embodied in our Center for Studying Disability Policy, established in 2007. Our large, multidisciplinary team understands the complexities facing federal and state policymakers in designing and operating programs that serve people with disabilities, as well as the challenges faced by people with disabilities in interacting with those programs.

Mathematica works closely with our clients to build an evidence base that supports their critical policy decisions and addresses their information needs by conducting the following:

  • Program and policy analyses
  • Demonstrations and evaluations
  • Administrative data processing and analysis
  • Surveys and data collection
  • Technical assistance
