Independent Research

All of our research is independently conducted and held to strict standards of peer review, replicability, and academic integrity. We make the data in our research publications available for others and encourage researchers to replicate our findings. Authors must disclose to the Institute  financial relationships that might bear on their research.

While some donor funds support specific research projects, donors do not edit or determine the conclusions or policy implications drawn from Institute research. We receive support from about 150 corporations, foundation grants, individuals, and public institutions in the United States and abroad each year, as well as income derived from our capital fund and publication sales.

Sources of Financial Support [PDF] for PIIE have been listed annually on our website since 2013. You can learn more about PIIE by viewing our 990 IRS report (on GuideStar - free account registration required) or learn more by reading our Transparency Policy for additional details.

PIIE has been consistently awarded the highest possible rating by Charity Navigator in recognition of our commitment to transparency and open disclosure of funding.
