ISR consists of five separate but interdependent Research Centers, each with a particular focus and capabilities. These Centers receive administrative and professional support from the ISR Center for Institute Services.
More than 200 research scientists are affiliated with one or more of the ISR Research Centers. They come from more than 20 academic disciplines, including psychology, business, economics, public health, political science, demography, statistics, and engineering.
Working as entrepreneurs, ISR researchers compete for public and private research funding. Their work provides the foundation for the Institute’s legacy of social science in the public interest.
