It is our mission to significantly improve the information provided to policy makers who design and revise welfare, health, education, and labor programs at the national, state and local level.

To fulfill this mission, SPHERE offers practitioners a powerful policy analysis capability, providing specific, impartial advice and context for policy debates. In developing models for timely analysis, SPHERE has developed a deep understanding of health and social trends in California that also provides a solid infrastructure for its long-term research program. With these interrelated goals, SPHERE serves the interests of the public, government, business and the research community.
