Welcome to the chair for Economic Policy and Applied Econometrics

In research and teaching the chair deals with current economic policy issues, especially in the fields of labor market research, welfare measurement, education and business cycle analysis. Economic relations are analyzed, using observed data and applied econometric methods. The main focus of the chair is on the evaluation of governmental interventions.

The students learn how to derive reliable insights, using appropriate identification strategies. Considering socio-economic factors, these insights are used to identify causal effects.
