About LEW

The Labour Econometrics Workshop (LEW) is an annual meeting hosted by a different university in Australasia each year. This year marks the 15th consecutive meeting. The objective of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for researchers in applied microeconometrics to share and discuss their latest research, and receive constructive feedback. A very broad definition of the field of ‘labour econometrics’ is applied – and submissions in the areas of public, health and development economics are encouraged. Sufficient time is allocated for each paper to enable serious discussion of methodological and technical issues. Organisers strive to include a blend of papers by established researchers and junior scholars.
