In addition to developing and publishing new datasets, the Data Services research team is also skilled at analyzing data to help shed light on critical policy issues facing the region and its communities. We combine datasets in novel ways and conduct innovative statistical analysis to produce findings and actionable analysis that helps to inform decision-makers.

Our recent research efforts have addressed the housing and demographic impacts of the proposed Green Line Extension, the need for workforce housing in Metro Boston, the impact of new school construction on district enrollment, and the impacts of proposed school assignment policies in the City of Boston.
