Public Policy & Economic Impact Analysis
Analysis Group’s broad industry experience, combined with our technical expertise, helps our clients shape policy outcomes, and prepare for and adapt to the impact of policy changes. We collaborate with leading outside experts, tailoring our team and methodological approaches to each engagement. Examples of our work include:
Economic Impact Analyses
Economic impact studies are valuable tools we use to measure the effects of proposed, existing, or ceased economic activity that results from policy and other economic changes, and to assess the resulting economic implications. Drawing on our understanding of industry forces and economic theory, we conduct economic impact studies to help identify and measure how changes in regulations, funding flows, technology, and other factors can affect public policy or corporate strategy decisions.
Surveys & Experimental Studies
Analysis Group has expertise in survey design and analysis, as well as in experimental approaches. This work provides powerful insights to policy makers, corporations, and nongovernmental and other organizations seeking to shape policy debates and determine the potential impacts of proposed or existing policies. Our survey work, which includes structured, quantitative market research methods and experimental studies, has been applied to a variety of areas, including health policy and economic impact analysis.
Statistical & Empirical Analyses
Analysis Group frequently draws on our experience in statistics and econometrics to develop empirical analyses that help our clients understand the impacts of proposed or existing policies. Our work is objective and fact-based. We often collaborate with leading academics, developing high-impact results that have informed corporate strategy, Congressional and regulatory decision making, and public debate, and have been published in leading academic journals and major media.
When government agencies propose new regulations (or evaluate existing ones), they are often required to assess both costs and benefits. Analysis Group has worked with government agencies, corporations, and other groups to quantify the anticipated costs and benefits of proposed regulations. As with our other policy work, we frequently collaborate with leading academics and industry participants to develop persuasive, well-informed approaches.
