CEPR: Taking on the Goliaths of the D.C. Think-Tank World

CEPR has been called a “rather effective David”  when compared with other think-tanks in this town, and a recent listing of the top 50 D.C. think-tanks bears this out. CEPR ranked 16 out of 50 in the Linktank Blog’s recently published list of top D.C. think-tanks. 

We’re especially proud of our ranking when you compare our budget with the other contenders. Take, for example, the American Enterprise Institute: They are ranked only 2 places higher at number 14 on the list, yet they have a budget that is 15 times higher than CEPR’s. And we’re ahead of such well-known (and well-funded) names such as the Pew Charitable Trusts.

CEPR has consistently ranked first in media hits per budget dollar of all major think-tanks, based on an analysis of Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting’s think-tank media citation rankings and organizational budgets. We also ranked first in web hits per budget dollar. 

Maybe next year they will rate the think-tanks on effective use of funds.  If so, Heritage will have a real fight on their hands.
