Policy Matters

This work helps state leaders find research on effective policies in the areas most important to a family's opportunity and stability: employment, income and asset growth, health, education and healthy family relationships.

Key to a state's prosperity is the strength of its families, the health of communities and the efficiency of government investment -- all of which can be enhanced by adopting policies that improve opportunities for children and families. Policy Matters consists of a series of briefs, papers, guides for self-assessment and comparative reports on all 50 states. As policymakers pursue these goals, this evidence helps assess which policies can produce concrete, sustainable and cost-effective results.
