Coleridge Initiative


Our 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 startup that has already created dozens of pilot projects, worked with more than 100 agencies—federal, state and local—and more than 500 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 Administrative Data Research 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.
