Policy Research

The North Carolina Center for Public Policy Research conducts research on important public policy issues facing North Carolina.  Our Board of Directors, which is designed to mirror the demographics of the state, chooses the topics, but we welcome ideas for topics to study from citizens across the state.  This research is published in a journal called North Carolina Insight, a citizens’ guide to the legislature, our newsletter called From the Center Out, and book-length, in-depth research reports.  Other products are described on the left.
