Centre for Evidence-Based Public Services
Improving health, education, welfare and the environment through data-driven research into public services.
Based in the school once home to Alfred Marshall, the Centre is home to an international team firmly focused on research with policy impact. Led by Helen Simpson, we conduct data-intensive studies on a variety of public services, from health and welfare to urban planning and the environment. Putting a premium on practical solutions to real-world problems our school was recently ranked first in the UK for its policy impact - a strong foundation CEPS seeks to build on.
