Our Mission

To use data and economics to uncover the consequences of policy decisions and improve society.

Who We Are

Blueprint Labs is a non-partisan research lab based at MIT with affiliates at universities and institutions across the world.

What We Do

Our scholars apply their unique expertise to pressing problems in education, health care, and the workforce. We use cutting-edge research from the fields of market design and research design to produce rigorous evidence that can help decision-makers design and implement social policy.

Market Design

Our market design projects focus on how to efficiently and fairly allocate scarce resources.

Research Design

Our research design projects use advanced statistical methods to measure the impact of interventions or policies.

What We Believe

We believe that rigorous evidence and data are the best foundations for policy and decision-making. The results of our research have been published in peer-reviewed academic journals, widely disseminated in popular media, and used by government organizations to inform policymaking. Our work generates fundamental insights about the nature of social systems and their causal effects, including how to identify and design effective education and labor market interventions.
