Evaluating Impact of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on Social Science: An NSF RAPID Proposal

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigators:   Amy M. Pienta, Myron Gutmann

This is a proposal for an NSF RAPID award, with a goal of ensuring that it will be possible to understand and evaluate the impact of investments in social science research and data production funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The over-arching goal of the project is to systematically develop a database of the ARRA projects, their investments, and their productivity, in order to evaluate their contribution to economic change, to the making of science policy, and to innovative social science research more broadly. We focus on the social sciences because they constitute a coherent scientific domain and because the ICPSR research team has substantial experience in collecting data about social science data production and research, and in enumerating and evaluating the products of that research. Specifically, we will target the projects designed to produce data that may be used by a number of researchers, and then look at the entire life cycle of a research project and its products to evaluate its impact, through publications, citations, presentations to policymakers, and other means.

Funding Period: 06/15/2009 to 05/31/2011

Country of Focus: USA
