NPI encourages the re-use and redistribution of its published materials provided such reuse or redistribution is done at no cost to the end user. We also ask that the end use be consistent with NPI’s mandate as a federally registered charity for educational purposes dedicated to supporting evidence-based investigation of policy options and impacts. We are especially pleased when our material is used by, or in support of, youth. Permission is hereby given for reuse of our published material on this basis provided that proper credit is given to NPI as the original source. We would also appreciate being advised of such re-use or redistribution wherever possible via email at


We offer a multitude of ways for you to get involved in our work to offer counter-points, profile your own research, or share your data and measurement tools.
