Washington State Department of Social and Health Services

Research & Data Analysis Division


RDA research reports provide analytical information and answers about users of DSHS services regarding need, demand, use, supply, risk, cost and outcomes of the human services that DSHS provides. The research reports can be for specific topics as well as for different types of geographical areas.

RDA online research reports are organized in four different indexes. The Author and Title indexes are sorted in alphabetical order. The Date index is sorted in chronological order starting with the latest first, and the Geography index is sorted by different geographical boundaries used for Washington State. If you have an interest to view RDA research that was done before 1997 you can view our categories and project number indexes as well.
