NORC was awarded a subcontract from Frank Dobbin of Harvard University for a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded pilot study on the efficacy of faculty diversity policies and programs.

Home Care in Rural America. Several provisions of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 (BBA) have affected Medicare-covered home health care, including the interim payment system and the introduction of a prospective payment system for Medicare services.

The Interpersonal Conflict and Resolution (iCOR) Study. ​​NORC has been awarded a grant from the National Institute of Justice to conduct a study that examines conflict in interpersonal relationships and the overlap between victim and offender statuses. Nearly five decades of research has revealed a strong association between criminal offending and victimization. This 31-month project will investigate the etiology of the victim-offender overlap through the design and application of new measurement tools to understand the nature of interpersonal conflicts including mechanisms that generate conflict escalation.
