Opportunity Insights supports policymakers, practitioners, and communities to use our research and data to develop evidence-based solutions for improved economic mobility.
A central part of Opportunity Insights’ mission is to train the next generation of researchers and policy leaders on methods to study and improve economic opportunity and related social problems.
Based at Harvard University, our team of researchers and policy analysts work together to analyze new data and create a platform for local stakeholders to make more informed decisions.
Opportunity Insights (OI) recently sent its summer 2023 digital newsletter where you can read about our latest research developments and learn how our evidence is shaping policy and practice.
This issue includes research updates on admissions policies at Ivy-Plus colleges and their impact on the socioeconomic diversity of leadership in American Society, the return on investment of IRS tax audits, qualitative insights on what made CMTO a success, as well as a number of other resources on how OI’s research is informing policies and programs.
