Domestic Research at Rand.
Rand Corp., Santa Monica, CA.
This third descriptive inventory of the Rand Corporation's domestic non-military research covers all projects since 1972, as well as its special 1969-1975 program for New York City. For each of over 300 research projects in nine program areas, brief summaries identify the project title and sponsor, beginning and ending dates, person-years of work performed, principal investigators, research problem and results, and selected project publications. The nine areas comprise the following: (1) criminal justice, focusing on street crime; (2) education and human resources, including educational finance, governance, evaluation, research, postsecondary education, and human services; (3) energy policy, production, and use; (4) health sciences, especially health insurance, education, manpower, and care quality; (5) housing problems, markets, and related government programs; (6) labor and population studies, touching on labor markets, economic development, and population growth; (7) regulatory policies and institutions and their effects and processes; (8) urban policy, including the effects of federal, state, and local policies; and (9) a general category covering water management, communications, climate, air pollution, computers, and science and technology. The New York City program examined welfare, health, housing, fire protection, law enforcement, criminal justice, and water resources. An appendix lists all U.S. and foreign libraries maintaining collections of unclassified Rand publications. (Author/RW)
