Evidence-Based Economic Policy Making
The increasing availability of high-quality (administrative) data for economic research has triggered a shift in the way economists approach questions on the impacts of economic policies and led to substantial advances in the methodological toolbox for identifying causal effects of economic policies in all virtually all sub-disciplines of economics. The annual conference of the Austrian Economic Association aims at discussing recent results and new findings on the effects of economic policies putting a specific but not exclusive focus on Austria. Furthermore, the conference also provides a forum for a discussion on how empirical evidence can better and more effectively inform actual economic policy making.
