NORC studies science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics education to help policymakers and education institutions drive American innovation and competitiveness.

As technology and globalization make the economy and the job market increasingly volatile, educators, policymakers, and industries have directed increasing attention to vocational training, professional development, and the kinds of adult education that help people build and change careers across the full arc of their working lives. Many of their initiatives rely on NORC’s data and analysis.

NORC conducted a national evaluation of the United States Department of Labor’s Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Grant Program, which provides funds to community colleges and other educational and career training institutions. NORC researchers have also collected rich data on the impact of continuing education in the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth.
