Econometric methods
Our approach is to combine new ideas in economic theory with cutting-edge microeconometric methods.

By using data to analyse the characteristics and behaviour of people and firms at a disaggregated level, we can develop a richer understanding of the impact of policy and its social and economic environment than is possible simply from looking at aggregate measures.

To help achieve this, our research agenda encompasses investigation of microeconometric methods, policy evaluation methodology and modelling of individual, household and firm behaviour, as well as analysis of particular policy issues and key ingredients for effective policy development.

The Centre for Microdata Methods and Practice (cemmap) at IFS provides a focus for development, understanding and application of the statistical and econometric tools used to identify and estimate models of behaviour.
