Our Story

In 1963, three statisticians created a new statistical services company, Westat.

Now, more than 50 years on, we have grown from a small enterprising startup to an organization with domestic and international offices, continuing in our tradition to conduct high-quality, nonpartisan studies on issues that help our clients meet their program challenges.
