New Consumption Data 2022
Call for Papers
"New Consumption Data"
Copenhagen, September 5 - 6, 2022
Submission deadline – 6 pm (GMT), June 1, 2022
We invite you to submit a paper or express interest in attending the fourth conference on New Consumption Data organized by the University of Copenhagen (CEBI), London School of Economics, and CEPR. This year’s conference will take place in Copenhagen from September 5-6, 2022. The deadline for submission to June 1, 2022.
For the past four 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, high frequency spending data from banks or financial planning apps and survey data based on innovative instruments. 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 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.
Relevant topics include, but is not limited to:
• Asset returns and spending
• Spending effects of unemployment events
• Welfare consequences of social insurance programs
• The impact of mortgage refinancing on spending
• Validation of new spending measures
• Consumption inequality
• Spending effects of public policies
• Insurance within the family
• Children and spending
• Consumption during the COVID-19 crisis
• Expectations and consumption decisions
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.
CEBI can cover economy fair travel and accommodation expenses for presenters. If you could contribute to the costs of your attendance from a research grant at your disposal, however, this would free up funds for other participants. Please indicate in your application whether you will be able to cover your own travel costs, or whether you will require funding.
