CQ Researcher reports are original, comprehensive analyses on issues in the news. CQ Researcher is noted for its in-depth, unbiased coverage of health, social trends, criminal justice, international affairs, education, the environment, technology, and the economy. Each single-themed, 12,000-word re-port is researched and written by a seasoned journalist and is organized starting with an introductory overview; back-ground and chronology on the topic; an assessment of the current situation; tables and maps; pro/con statements from representatives of opposing positions; and bibliographies of key sources.

CQ Weekly uses a team of more than 100 reporters, editors and researchers to cover virtually every act of Congress, delivering nonpartisan news and analysis unavailable anywhere else. Each issue – fully archived to 1983 on the Web – looks forward and back. You get in-depth reports on issues looming on the congressional horizon, plus a complete wrap-up the previous week’s news, including the status of bills in play, behind-the-scenes maneuvering, committee and floor activity, debates and all roll-call votes.
