Greater Washington Research at Brookings made important contributions to the health and well-being of Washington, DC and its surrounding metropolitan area over the ten-year span of 2001 to 2011. Through research and policy recommendations regarding housing, health care, transportation, education, and demographic and economic trends, Brookings brought critical issues to the forefront as a widely-respected voice on policies to strengthen the region’s prosperity and inclusiveness.
Brookings continues its research and policy analysis on the Washington D.C. region through the Metropolitan Policy Program and Senior Fellow Alice M. Rivlin, who previously directed the financial control board that oversaw the District of Columbia’s emergence from bankruptcy.
A list of the project’s reports, papers and other research through 2010 appears below. More recent work focused on Washington, DC and the region appears here.
