The Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS) is a university-wide institute located physically within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University. It is an unusual hybrid organization, both a research center and also an integral part of the Harvard administration. IQSS directs large, interdisciplinary research projects; builds infrastructure that facilitates the research of students, faculty and others; houses research groups and technology centers; and administers professional staff and IT tools that increase the productivity of many others around the university. It also combines the roles, most obviously when it takes routine activities of the administration, turns them into research projects, automates their tasks, and greatly extends the reach, efficiency, creativity, and productivity of the effort. IQSS specializes in infrastructure that scales.

History of IQSS

IQSS began operations in the late fall of 2004. Originally started as the Center for Basic Research in the Social Sciences (CBRSS) in 1998, the new institute was an integrated collection of centers and academic units that shared a goal to advance quantitative methods for social sciences research. Included were the Harvard-MIT Data Center (HMDC), the Henry A. Murray Archive, the Initiative on Geospatial Analysis (now known as the Center for Geographic Analysis, or CGA), the Robert Wood Johnson Scholars in Health Policy Program, and the Ph.D. Program in Political Economy and Government.
