Journal of Economics and Statistics

Cover Journal of Economics and Statistics The Journal of Economics and Statistics (Jahrbücher für Nationalökonomie und Statistik) is a scientific journal published in Germany since 1863, since 2016 by De Gruyter Oldenbourg. Please find additional information as well as all volumes, issues and abstracts on the publishers page of the Journal of Economics and Statistics.

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.
