Mathematica is the insight partner for federal changemakers. We rigorously gather and interpret evidence to inform progress on urgent social issues.

Mathematica serves as the insight partner for federal changemakers by evaluating policies and programs and providing the analyses and insights needed to improve those programs. Our more than 1,200 experts dive deeply into complex social issues, gathering and analyzing data for decision making and translating findings into clear and concise recommendations. We partner with federal leaders to improve program services and foster participant progress by translating evidence into what to do next.

For more than 50 years, Mathematica has partnered with a wide range of federal agencies on international and domestic issues. We have supported healthy marriage and responsible fatherhood goals for the Administration for Children and Families and marshalled the evidence on charter schools for the U.S. Department of Education. Partnering with the U.S. Agency for International Development, we evaluated interventions to improve early reading and access to education in Latin America and the Caribbean. Our analysts examined chronic care services for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and tested U.S. Department of Labor pilot programs to help people who are hard to employ find jobs. Our techniques range from rapid learning approaches using programs’ own data to complex random assignment evaluations, bringing rigor and objectivity to help shape federal decision making.
