Review & Evaluation: National Academies Evaluation
NIOSH understands that external expert review is one of the most valid and accepted methods of evaluating research programs. Consequently, NIOSH requested that the National Academies (NA) evaluate its research programs with respect to their impact, relevance, and future directions. The NA was asked to evaluate not only what NIOSH research programs are producing, but also to determine the extent to which NIOSH research is responsible for changes in the workplace that reduce the risk of occupational injuries, illnesses, and deaths. The evaluation was conducted by the National Research Council (NRC) and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in the NA.
Even though Economics was not one of the programs evaluated by the Academies, the reports for the programs that were evaluated include both recommendations and emerging issues that are related to economics. We are synthesizing these finding to further guide our economic research.
