Analytical Center for the Government of the Russian Federation provides on-demand information analytics and expert support to the Government of the Russian Federation on the key issues of the socio-economic development of the country.

On 1st October 2019, the organization celebrated its 60th anniversary: it was on this day that in 1959 the Council of Ministers of the USSR signed an executive order establishing a Computational Center at the State Planning Committee of the USSR (which later became the Chief Computational Center of the State Planning Committee of the USSR), effectively, the first predecessor of the Analytical Center. Having undergone a series of reorganizations as the country was transitioning to a market economy and having changed several names in the process, the Analytical Center finally got its current designation in December 2005.

Since 2013 the Analytical Center has been rated in the annual Global Go To Think Tank rating (compiled by the University of Pennsylvania in the USA) among the best think tanks in Central and Eastern Europe and among the Top Social Policy Think Tanks, Think Tanks to Watch, and the Best Government Affiliated Think Tanks.
