Ongoing Programs

Alaska Energy Data Gateway

An online database with energy data—most of it at the community level—from across Alaska.  The site provides data from many sources, through a single access point. The data can be downloaded in a variety of file formats.

The gateway was developed with a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy in cooperation with the Alaska Energy Authority. It is housed at the University of Alaska’s Arctic Region Supercomputing Center in Fairbanks. This initial release contains only part of the information we hope to include in the future. We ask users to let us know how we can add to and improve the site.

If you have questions, get in touch with Ginny Fay, assistant professor of economics, at vfay@alaska.edu, or Kyle Borash, programmer, at kwborash@alaska.edu. You can also e-mail comments to akenergygateway@alaska.edu.

George Rogers Emerging Scholars Fund

The George Rogers Emerging Scholars Fund was established at ISER in 2011 to encourage young scholars and promote research opportunities in Alaska. It honors the memory of George Rogers, an economist and guiding light of ISER for half a century.

Kids Count Alaska

Kids Count is a nationwide program of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, to collect and publicize information about the health, safety, and economic status of American children. The foundation publishes a national data book every year and also funds Kids Count programs in all the states.

ISER has carried out the Kids Count Alaska program since 1996, publishing data books and maintaining a website with data for Alaska and its regions and links to national information. If you have questions, get in touch with Virgene Hanna, the director of Kids Count Alaska and a senior research associate at ISER.

Investing for Alaska

Investing for Alaska is a special ISER research initiative, funded by a grant from Northrim Bank. The research is examining, in various ways, the importance of investment for building a strong Alaska economy. If you have questions, get in touch with Scott Goldsmith, professor emeritus of economics at ISER, who directs the research.

Alaskool

Alaskool is an archival website hosting one of the largest online collections of materials on Alaska Native history, languages, and cultures. ISER and several partner organizations created the site in 1997, and almost all the materials on the site were posted between 1997 and 2004.

Citizen's Guide to the Budget

This special ISER site describes many aspects of the state budget process and is intended to help Alaskans better understand that complicated process. It was created in 2004, so the budget figures are now far out of date. But the description of the budget process is still useful, and ISER hopes to be able to update the numbers in the future. If you have questions, get in touch with Scott Goldsmith, professor emeritus of economics at ISER.

Center for Alaska Education Policy Research (CAEPR)

CAEPR is a center within the Institute of Social and Economic Research created with seed funding from the University of Alaska Foundation. Researchers at the center study education policy issues, working with teachers, policymakers, and others with interests in education. If you have questions, get in touch with CAEPR's director, Diane Hirshberg, at dbhirshberg@alaska.edu.
