A relevant question for policy makers is often an analysis of causal relation between behaviour, or actions and outcomes, or impact. Econometric analysis is often used to assess the causal relation between policy interventions and impact, as qualitative methods are in some cases not sufficient to establish the isolated effect of policy (the nett effect). We also perform econometric analysis in order to find out what the appropriate policy should be. For policy to be effective, policy should ideally target the right causes of a specific issue.
We are well known for our econometric capabilities that go beyond analysis of data. We use our practical and theoretical insights to incorporate the relevant factors and to translate the results into practical knowledge and consequences for policy.
Our econometric skills are one of the main reasons partners and clients request our services. As part of the university and through a remote access connection with the national statistics office (CBS), we have access to relevant data. We have experience with various kinds of econometric techniques:
