Created by 1961 by the Alaska Legislature, the Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER) is based at the University of Alaska, Anchorage. The ISER is based within the College of Business and Public Policy, and their work includes researching and writing reports on matters of importance to the state, including the future of the fishing industry and transportation planning. On their homepage, they have the "Information from ISER" area, which includes their latest publications, presentations, and "Web Notes" series. The "Web Notes" are especially noteworthy, and they include short briefings on public infrastructure projects, the economic status of Alaskan Native peoples, and household energy costs. Moving along, the "Recent Publications and Presentations" area includes works such as timely reports on Alaska's homeless populations, construction spending, and the Anchorage school district. Finally, the site includes a special interactive report titled "Alaska's People and Economy, 1867-2009".
