As an architect of social policy research, Mathematica has evolved into a global driver of evidence-based policymaking and program improvement.
Not all evidence is equal. We conduct rigorous research across our focus areas to further evidence-based decision making and to help federal agencies, state and local governments, foundations, educational institutions, professional associations, and businesses understand what works. Our research contributes to the development of effective policies that promote equity and well-being.
