The Center for Computer-based Behavioral Studies CCBS on the UCLA Campus is designed and is being developed to overcome a number of the methodological limitations blocking significant research advances in, and behavioral sciences contributions to, the study of national policies and problems. The Center is designed around a time shared computer system that will make its informational and technological resources available to behavioral scientists and policy analysts located at widely dispersed university and government research centers, offering them new and powerful research, policy planning, and educational tools. A number of these tools for studying and analyzing the behavior of individuals, groups, and social-political units are specifically capable of narrowing the enormous gap that continues to exist between the policy analyst and the behavioral scientist.
