Applied Economics

Three people sitting at a desk all working on computers.

A focus on empirical economic issues

We cover a range of topics in applied economics. In particular, we study labour economics, development microeconomics, family, health, population, education, gender, migration, crime, inequality, productivity and technology.

We study issues affecting social and private behaviour. Cluster members typically investigate aspects such as supply and demand of labour services, distribution of income, human capital, labor mobility, and applied and policy issues in demographics. The traditional focus has been on empirical microeconomics. More recently some members have applied similar methods to study issues related to cities and regions.
