The Institute for Scientific Analysis studies social problems and applies research findings in the service of solutions to those problems. ISA contributes to policy debates on social issues including poverty, social welfare, education, crime and delinquency, mental health, race and ethnicity, gender, child development, aging, violence, AIDS, substance abuse, and health disparities among different groups in our society.
In 2015 the Computer-assisted Survey Methods (CSM) Program joined the Institute for Scientific Analysis under an exclusive license agreement with the University of California. CSM develops survey tools that enhance the use of information technology within survey related organizations in the academic, governmental, and private sectors.
