The People Lab aims to transform the public sector, by producing cutting-edge research on the people in government and the communities they serve. We collaborate with governments and other stakeholders to co-design and evaluate data-driven strategies that can strengthen the public-sector workforce, improve public service delivery, and foster an engaged democracy.  



  • Produce data-driven research on how to strengthen the government workforce and improve public service delivery
  • Develop and disseminate best practices to government agencies, non-profits, and other stakeholders
  • Enable government agencies to incorporate rigorous evidence and evaluation into service delivery
  • Train students to carry out policy-relevant research in partnership with government agencies
