About CAED

One of the most important developments in economic research over the last couple of decades has been an increasing amount of analyses using firm-level data. The growing availability of comprehensive panel data on all enterprises in a single economy provides for the opportunity to revisit many of the classic empirical questions in economics using data at the appropriate level of aggregation—the business decision-making unit. These data also stimulate the analysis of many new questions that economists could not even dream of addressing without them. In addition, the availability of the data across multiple countries has made comparative analyses possible. Together, the data and accompanying research agendas are thus transforming much of economics and public policy analysis.

The aim of CAED conferences is to promote scientific research using enterprise micro data. The conferences are a unique meeting point for producers and users of these data, such as statisticians, economists and econometricians, but also an opportunity for policymakers to get acquainted with the newest research results and policy implications in this rapidly expanding field.
