ABOUT

VISION

Our goal is to change the empirical foundation of social science, statistical and public agencies in the United States and transform understanding of how our society works. We are a fast growing university-based startup that has already created dozens of pilot projects, worked with over 100 agencies – federal, state and local - and trained over 250 agency staff.

Our team is led by world renowned experts - Rayid Ghani, Robert Goerge, Frauke Kreuter, and Julia Lane, – and we are building new technologies housed in a secure computational research platform – the NYU Administrative Research Data Facility to promote access and discovery of sensitive and confidential microdata. Those technologies are combined with training programs and consulting services to build agency capacity to serve society.
