Centre for Structural Econometrics

Organisation profile

Organisation profile

The Centre for Structural Econometrics (CSE) is a unique research centre, dedicated to studying the usefulness of explicitly incorporating economic theory (structure) into empirical analyses. CSE brings together applied economic theorists and econometricians to foster the development of new structural models and estimation techniques capable of addressing a wide range of fundamental economic topics. These topics include, but are not limited to, female labour force participation, gender pay differentials, earnings dynamics, immigration flows, housing, mortgage, and portfolio choices, firm investment decisions, price formation, auctions, and economic growth and development.

The overriding objectives of CSE are to uncover the relative advantages of adopting a structural framework for empirical work, in comparison to more widespread a-theoretical approaches to econometric analysis, and ultimately to advance theory-based applied economic research in the UK and internationally, thus yielding new insights into underlying mechanisms of the economy, and better informing decision-makers in both the public and private sectors.
