Key Projects

Sampling Design and Statistical Methods

For the U.S. Veterans Administration, we helped design and administer the Survey of Enrollees, which comprised sampling, data collection, and analysis of 42,000 respondents over 750 strata each year.

Machine Learning

Currently as the BFCC National Coordinating Oversight and Review Center (NCORC), we are developing a suite of machine learning tools to assist clinicians in reviewing Medicare patient records to identify medical errors.

Complex Data Analysis

For the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, our economists created the Location Affordability Index (LAI), a robust measure of standardized household housing and transportation costs at the Census tract level.

Development, Implementation, and Testing of Quality Tools

As the BFCC NCORC, we also use qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research to develop health-related outreach, education and decision support materials.
