It focuses on the economic condition of low and middle-income Americans and their families. Its research on the status of American workers is widely cited, and its State of Working America is issued every two years.

Its work spans a wide range of economic issues, such as trends in wages, incomes and prices; health care; education; retirement security; state-level economic development strategies; trade and global finance; comparative international economic performance; the health of manufacturing and other key sectors; global competitiveness and energy development.
