The RAND Corporation is a non-profit research organization providing objective analysis and effective solutions that address the challenges facing the public and private sectors around the world.
Policy research and analysis are the core of RAND’s business. Today, RAND researchers operate on a uniquely broad front, assisting public policy makers at all levels, private-sector leaders in many industries, and the public at large in efforts to strengthen the nation’s economy, maintain its security, and improve its quality of life. They do so by analyzing choices and issues in many policy areas, including national defense, education and training, health care, criminal and civil justice, labor and population, science and technology, community development, society-wide arts and humanities, international relations, and regional studies.
