The objective of this research was to explore the roles and experiences of governments analysts. A consideration of this group was timely given the emphasis on the government's use of evidence in policy in recent years. Further, more needs to be known about the work of intermediaries in the evidence-policy relationship, a broad ranging group to which government analysts arguably belong. This exploratory qualitative research investigated how government analysts understood and managed the relationship between evidence and policy. In addition, the research examined the contributions of different analytical professions to schools and disability employment.
