Conference

Nordic conference on register data and economic modelling

The purpose of the conference is to gather researchers in Nordic countries that use register data in empirical research. Although the scope and topic of the papers may vary, most papers have a clear theoretical motivation. Applied theory papers--in for instance search theory-may also be presented.
