The Journal of Economics and Statistics publishes papers in all fields of economics and applied statistics. A specific focus is on papers combining theory with empirical analyses.
Papers providing conclusions for economic policy in Europe are particularly welcome. Nevertheless, distinguished papers dealing exlusively with economic theory, empirical models, or economic history, will not be excluded from consideration.
The editors invite replication studies focusing on the robustness of empirical findings.
The section Data Observer presents articles on data sets available for empirical research and institutions providing research data. The journal also publishes special issues, short comments, and book reviews.
New Section Data Observer
Since January 2016, the Journal of Economics and Statistics comprises a new section "Data Observer" for free download at Inhalte/Data observer. The papers in this section describe datasets available for empirical research and provide details on how to obtain access to these datasets for research.
