Welcome to the BEDR Policy Lab.


We use behavioral economics and psychology to build evidence-based policy recommendations. We use a combination of field experiments and data analytics to explore topics such as health, labor, crime, household finance, and happiness. Our goal is to use scientific research to make policy simpler, smarter, and better.
