Research Institute

The Research Institute was formed so that descriptive and analytical papers that grow out of this program can be efficiently distributed. The Research Institute issues three types of products: Discussion Papers; Reprints (of published papers); and Special Reports. These products have not undergone official review by the State of Connecticut; any opinions expressed are those of the authors alone. A list of products released by the Research Institute is shown below.
