Our Work

Health
We collect data through interviews, physical exams, and records review to help guide actions and policies to improve health and health care around the world.
Education
From students to teachers, from standards to global comparisons, we set the benchmark on excellence in education research.
Social Policy
We evaluate the fit and function of a variety of social services available to Americans. From children and families to marginalized populations, Westat’s work informs social policy.
Transportation
Americans take 1.1 billion trips a day and U.S. daily travel totals 4 trillion miles. Our nationally recognized researchers study travel behavior and systems to help find and address traffic and safety challenges.
Information Systems
Westat designs systems solutions for a range of research challenges. We emphasize technological accessibility, usable interfaces, comprehensive testing and certification, data security and confidentiality, and user support and training.
