2012 Annual Report
RAND's 2012 Annual Report illustrates the increasingly effective ways in which RAND disseminates its research findings and recommendations to help individuals, communities, and nations be safer and more secure, healthier and more prosperous. Amidst all the noise and static of today's policy debates, people are listening to RAND.
Past Annual Reports
The RAND Corporation is a nonprofit institution that helps improve policy and decisionmaking through research and analysis. RAND's 2011 Annual Report demonstrates the scope of RAND's work and illustrates the ways RAND disseminates its research findings and recommendations as widely as possible to help individuals, communities, and nations be safer, healthier, more secure, and more prosperous.
RAND's 2010 Annual Report — with its focus on multinational challenges, healthy societies, armed forces and resources, education, financial stability, safety and justice, infrastructure and environment, and terrorism — demonstrates the scope of RAND's research and analysis and illustrates the ways RAND disseminates its findings and recommendations as widely as possible to benefit the public good.
RAND's work in 2009 rests upon more than 60 years of sustained investment in people and ideas, and demonstrates how this investment has helped build and will contribute to building a better world.
The theme of the RAND Corporation's 2008 Annual Report is "Setting Politics Aside." Examples of recent research in such areas as veterans health, piracy and terrorism, education, and transportation exemplify how RAND, with policy research roots in the scientific method and a commitment to service in the public interest, has to set politics aside.
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the RAND Corporation, we train the spotlight on several ways in which RAND has worked to explore ideas and challenges that place us “ahead of the curve.” At the same time, we look ahead to how RAND will continue in that tradition.
