ASR Analytics Reports and Case Studies

January 13, 2015

In 2010, after a competitive procurement, NTIA awarded a contract to research firm ASR Analytics, LLC to conduct an independent analysis of the social and economic impacts of the $4 billion in Recovery Act grants awarded under the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP).  ASR performed an extensive analysis of the quarterly and annual reports from more than 200 grantees over a four-year period, and conducted 27 detailed case studies of individual BTOP projects.  The case studies were based on site visits that included interviews, observations and data collection.  The products of the study include a Final Report, two Interim Reports, the case study documents and a Short Term Economic impacts Report.  The study methodology and datasets are also publicly available.  For more information, email
