About Us

The Center for Human Resource Research (CHRR), founded in 1965, is a multidisciplinary research organization affiliated with the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences of The Ohio State University. Concerned with a wide range of contemporary problems related to developing and conserving human resources, CHRR is responsible for designing survey instruments, overseeing field work, and generating and disseminating fully documented data sets to researchers in government, private research organizations, and universities around the world. These interests range from the production of substantive analyses of economic, social, and psychological aspects of individual labor market behavior to examining the impact of government programs and policies.

In addition to conducting a diverse number of surveys, CHRR staff members continue to contribute innovative applications of ideas and technology to the field of survey methodology.
