Pew Center on the States

Self-described, the Pew Center on the States "helps The Pew Charitable Trusts and its partners examine effective policy approaches to critical issues facing states." The Center's strategy is to gather information, guide innovation, and advance policy solutions. They propose their research and analysis to be original, and include cross-state assessments; their publications to "raise the national profile of issues affecting multiple states;" and their communication to be "effective dissemination and outreach to state decision-makers, media, influential stakeholders and the public."

The Center's first report was a Special on Medicaid, Bridging the Gap Between Care And Cost (pdf, 292KB), first published in the January issue of Governing Magazine and the Council of State Governments (CSG) State News.

The Center's research explores such major state issues as: early and K-12 education; government performance; election reform; public safety and corrections; and campaign finance reform. While working through The Pew Charitable Trusts partners, the Center also gathers links to their research and reports on their web site.
