New Consumption Data

We invite you to attend the third conference on New Consumption Data organized by the University of Copenhagen, London School of Economics, and CEPR. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, this year’s conference will be held as a webinar event to take place on September 2-3, 2021. 
For the past three years, the conference has successfully gathered together researchers working on a wave of research on consumption using new types of spending data, such as imputed consumption from administrative data, data from supermarket scanners, and high frequency spending data from banks or financial planning apps. By now, this has turned into an extremely active and fruitful area of research, opening new and interesting perspectives in various fields in economics, from labor to public economics, from household finance to macroeconomics.
The goal of the online event is to bring people interested in the topic together to present new research using these new data and methods to measure spending, discuss pros and cons and exchange best practices, etc.
The event provides an opportunity for researchers from different universities and countries to present their work, get feedback, and hopefully to establish contact with other researchers interested in research involving new types of consumption data.
