Educational resources

Over time we plan to populate this page with a range of materials that will be suitable for A-level and undergratduate students with an interest in economics and related disciplines.

Useful data

Here are some links to data resources we have on our website that may be of interest:

  • Fiscal Facts: Fiscal Facts contains facts and figures about UK taxes, benefits, and the public finances.

  • Incomes in the UK: Data and analysis on Income distribution, poverty and inequality.

IFS Budget Analysis

We have a page of resources and analysis relating to the Budget 2014. Here you will find audio recordings and slides from each of the presentations Institute staff gave at the IFS post-Budget briefing, 20 March 2014.

IFS Green Budget 2014

Each year we produce our "Green Budget", where we discuss some of the many issues confronting the Chancellor as he prepares his Budget. We examine some of the key risks to the Chancellor's plans for reducing the deficit and also look at the housing market, income distribution, the UK energy market, state support for childcare, the taxation of private pensions and reforming business rates.

This flagship IFS publication was funded by the Nuffield Foundation, with support from the ESRC through the Centre for the Microeconomic Analysis of Public Policy at IFS. Oxford Economics wrote two macroeconomic chapters.

The full publication and recorded presentations with slides are available here.

Public economics lectures

Each year IFS researchers give talks on issues in public economics of interest to undergraduates in economics and related disciplines. Below you will find video clips with accompanying presentation slides.

We are grateful to the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) for their support in producing these materials.
