Register for the Measuring prices and welfare conference, Cemmap
Registration is open for the free, online conference on Measuring prices and welfare (28-29 April) organised by the Centre for microdata methods and practices (cemmap).
This conference explores the problems involved in producing measures of price change and quantity change. Historically the focus has been on measuring price changes using prices indices and using these to derive quantity changes. Price indices themselves are constructed from price data collected mainly from shops by combining them using weights derived from household or business surveys.
A keynote lecture will be given by Kevin Fox on:
“Price Index Measurement during Pandemics: What have we learnt from Covid-19?”
