Drawing attention to trends and new research is an important part of MissionSquare Research Institute’s mission.  To that end, the Research Institute collaborates with media outlets and related organizations to promote its research and resources. The Institute’s research has been covered by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, National Public Radio, Axios, CNBC, Bloomberg News, Fox Business, Governing, Politico, Forbes, USA Today, and many other outlets. State legislators and agencies, local governments, and federal and congressional entities rely on and cite that research regularly.
