To participate effectively in our democracy, people need clear and
reliable information about policy choices facing the Commonwealth.
The Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center (MassBudget) makes that information available to everyone, providing
independent research and analysis of state budget and tax policies, as
well as economic issues, with particular attention to the effects on
low- and middle-income children and adults. Our KIDS COUNT research is available at our website.
