Analyst Launches New Policy Firm Scioto Analysis

Columbus, OH (November 13, 2018) – This morning, Policy Analyst Rob Moore launched Scioto Analysis, a new policy analysis firm based in Columbus, Ohio. Scioto Analysis is committed to providing policymakers and policy influencers with evidence-based analysis of public policy problems.

Scioto Analysis will fill a gap in the supply of information about policy impacts to policymakers.

“According to a 2013 study by the Pew Charitable Trusts, the average state conducts only two cost-benefit analyses a year,” Moore said, “this means that thousands of pieces of legislation are passed every year without policymakers having access to basic information about their economic impact.”

Scioto Analysis plans to focus its work on the policy analysis needs of state legislative chambers, state agencies, and local governments. It will also make its policy analysis services available to nonprofits and private businesses interested in the impacts of public policies.

On Thursday, Scioto Analysis will be releasing a paper on the state of Ohio’s recovery from the Great Recession in conjunction with Gross National Happiness USA.
