The Northwest Social Research Group's founding partners bring to the table over twenty years experience in the field of social science research. We have collectively employed various research methods in studying and publishing within the areas of criminology, foundation funding, environmental policy, children's well-being, labor unions and women's and civil rights. Further, our methodological and statistical training, as well as a network of affiliated researchers, enable us to examine issues outside our immediate purview.
