Save the World Air (STWA) has developed magnet-based devices, including its Zero Emission Fuel Saver (ZEFS™), that it claims can improve vehicle fuel economy and reduce emissions. These devices are designed to be fitted as original equipment onto internal combustion engines or to be retrofitted onto existing engines. STWA asked the RAND Corporation to help develop a plan for assessing the te......

An important feature of group insurance and retirement benefits is that employers must design them around collective — rather than individual — employee characteristics, needs, and preferences. Given the analytic importance of linking data about the benefits offered by employers to data describing the characteristics of their workforces, and the severe limitations of existing data in t......
