Measuring Expenditure and Consumption

On February 22nd, we will have an afternoon session in the Geary Institute on the measurement of consumption and expenditure. Participants include Colm Harmon, Joachim Winter and Thomas Crossley. The aims of the afternoon include (i) focused discussion of current work on measuring consumption and expenditure in surveys (ii) introduction to the Irish internet panel being conducted in Geary and its potential use a tool for innovating in measurement in economics (iii) discussion of development of research (iv) discussion of development of ongoing seminar and workshops in this area (v) Short presentations from Dublin-based PhD students on their work on measurement.

Again, this is more focused than regular seminars. Please email if you are working on these areas and would like to attend this session. Also, would appreciate ideas for developing this from internal folks.
