The Empirical Microeconomics Laboratory (EMiL) carries out a wide range of research activities in the general fields of empirical micro-economics. The aim of the Laboratory is to promote empirical research with sound theoretical foundations. Research within the group adopts a micro-economic perspective using households, individual firms, sectoral and regional data.
Currently, the research group has research projects in two main areas, both relating to the application of appropriate econometric methods and models for the analysis of economic data. These areas are:
- Industrial dynamics and firms' heterogeneity
- Household choices and welfare analysis
