Since 1932, Research Bureau publications have monitored city finances, educated opinion leaders and served as a springboard for changes that improve Boston’s appeal as a place to live and to work. Our research takes many different forms: sometimes, it is a brief analysis of a timely problem such as collective bargaining agreements; other times, we take an exhaustive look at an issue to determine the root causes, measure the impact, and make measurable recommendations.
