The Rose Institute pursues complementary missions by providing research experiences for Claremont McKenna College students by conducting and publishing research primarily on California government and politics. Using computer technology, students and faculty of the Rose Institute advance knowledge about politics, and help create services that make the political process more democratic. Through the development of large computerized databases and advanced geographic retrieval systems, students become involved in projects focusing on such topics as redistricting, fiscal analysis, California demographics, survey research, and legal and regulatory analysis. The Rose Institute also continues its collaboration with the Kosmont Companies to publish the annual Kosmont-Rose Institute Cost of Doing Business Survey®. This survey, comprised of more than 400 county and city profiles across all 50 states, provides information highlighting the business advantages of each community. Project updates, political commentary, and expert analysis are available from the staff on the Rose Institute’s website, the Rose Report.
