Conference on Measuring Prices and Welfare


This conference, organised jointly by the Centre for Micro Methods and Practice and the Economic and Statistics Working Group, will take place on Zoom on 28-29 April 2021 and will examine the problems involved in producing measures of price change, quantity change and changes in welfare. It will explore some of the issues arising from the availability of new sources of data such as those from scanners, as well as traditional problems like measuring the price of housing. Kevin Fox  (University of New South Wales) will give a keynote lecture on “Price Index Measurement during Pandemics: What have we learnt from Covid-19?”.
