Mathematica Policy Research is expanding into the Baltimore metropolitan area with a new office in Woodlawn, Maryland, which will enable staff to work more closely with key clients—primarily the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Social Security Administration (SSA).

“Proximity to our clients and partners is critical to building stronger connections and helping Mathematica deliver on its mission of improving public well-being by informing decision makers across the public policy spectrum,” said Carey Appold, Mathematica senior researcher and director of the Woodlawn office. “We have longstanding relationships with CMS, SSA, and the Annie E. Casey Foundation, and we look forward to establishing ties with other organizations in the Baltimore area.”

Among many other projects for CMS, Mathematica’s health experts are leading research to improve primary care delivery through evaluations of the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus program and the Transforming Clinical Practices Initiative.

Mathematica’s projects for SSA include evaluations of the Promoting Opportunity Demonstration, an effort to promote employment and reduce dependency on Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, and Promoting Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income, a joint program with the Department of Education designed to improve education and employment outcomes for youth with disabilities.

In addition, Mathematica is partnering with the Annie E. Casey Foundation on the Expanding the Bench initiative to increase the number of historically underrepresented minority researchers and evaluators. Mathematica is also evaluating the foundation’s Local Deep End reforms, which aim to decrease the number of youth offenders placed outside of their homes.

With the opening of the Woodlawn office, Mathematica now has eight locations nationwide, reflecting the company’s increasing portfolio of work in policy research, data collection, and data analytics that meets the highest standards of quality and objectivity. Mathematica’s headquarters are in Princeton, New Jersey, and the company also has offices in Ann Arbor, Michigan; Cambridge, Massachusetts; Chicago, Illinois; Oakland, California; Tucson, Arizona; and Washington, DC.
