We carry out research as part of our independent work programme. We publish our research in the occasional papers listed in this collection.
About our research
The research we carry out as part our independent work programme aims to:
provide an evidence base for our work, improving members’ ability to scrutinise regulations and provide credible independent advice to ministers
add value to the debate on a topic that is of current interest to government or a broad range of our stakeholders
stimulate debate or discussion of a specific topic
introduce new thinking on data analysis
To get the most value from our projects, we try to undertake them at the right time and we avoid duplicating work being done by other organisations.
We are always keen to hear the views of stakeholders that can help shape our research. A wide range of stakeholders help with our projects, including at our twice-yearly stakeholder events. Our research needs to be useful at a practical level to individuals and organisations that are involved in the day-to-day delivery of benefits and aspects of welfare reform.
We welcome your views on new areas we should consider looking at. Please contact us with your ideas.
