Our research centre
The Centre for Applied Research in Economics supports an evidence-based approach to decision-making by undertaking research projects that translate advanced economic methods into practical advice.
Building an evidence base
Our research has practical implications for how households, businesses and governments make decisions. We apply cutting-edge empirical techniques to real-world data in order to build an evidence base to support decision-makers in both the public and private sector.
We regularly translate cutting-edge research into practical advice for a broad audience.
Our projects frequently extend beyond the realm of economics. We collaborate with research centres throughout the University, including:
- The Retirement Policy Research Centre
- The APEC Study Centre
- The Public Policy Institute
- The Centre for Science in Politics, Diplomacy and Society
As part of our mission to cultivate policy-relevant research, we also advise and collaborate with private and public sector entities, including:
- MRCagney Ltd
- Auckland City Council
