Research Watch: The Winners Are. . .

Diana Zuckerman
September 1, 1999

There was surprisingly little information cited from well-known organizations such as the Children’s Defense Fund, and nothing from the major think tanks on either side of the political spectrum.

The most frequently quoted organizations were the AMA and the APA, and journals published by each were also quoted. The Kaiser Family Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation were each quoted by one senator. Despite the millions of dollars they receive in federal funding by Congress, the National Research Council was quoted only once, and the Institute of Medicine not at all.
