Welcome to the Chair of Statistics and Econometrics!

Willkommen am Lehrstuhl für Statistik und Ökonometrie!


At the Chair of Statistics and Econometrics, we conduct research in the domains of health, education, and sometimes other domains. In our research, we apply microeconometric and other statistical techniques. Most of this research has a clear interdisciplinary component, which often brings us into contact with other fields such as medicine, epidemiology, and psychology. We for example conduct research on health care systems, long-term effects of exposures early in life on later-life health and economic outcomes, socioeconomic inequalities in health, effects of high criminality levels in a region on local children’s school performance and effects of policies and important life events on people’s health.
