Call for Papers
Call for Papers, Committee on Economic Statistics of the American Economic Association – 2015 ASSA meetings
The AEA Committee on Economic Statistics (AEAStat) will sponsor three sessions on economic measurement at the January 2015 ASSA Meetings in Boston. The Committee solicits both individual papers and proposals for sessions of three or four papers. The Committee is interested in receiving submissions in any area of economics, especially topics making use of new and unexplored datasets. Examples of topics of interest include (but are not restricted to): the duration of unemployment and its causes; mortgage and credit markets; financial risk in the household, business, and banking sectors; how the diffusion of innovation across firms contributes to productivity growth; and how income inequality, economic mobility and economic opportunities in the U.S. today compare with other countries and with earlier times. One of the three sessions organized by the Committee will be published in the AER Papers & Proceedings. Abstracts are due by April 15, 2014 to Robert Moffitt, chair, Committee on Economic Statistics, firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions should be PDF files and include name, institutional affiliation, and email address of all participants.
