Economics Applied econometrics

Our research involves the development and use of a range of statistical methods to explore both microeconomic and macroeconomic problems. This include the development of new measures of the modern economy, development of spatial econometrics and econometric techniques, and work to develop approaches to producing more timely indicators of the macroeconomy through ‘nowcasting’.
