The School of Economics at the University of Sydney is hosting the Labour Econometrics Workshop 2011 (LEW2011) on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th August, 2011.

The Labour Econometrics Workshop is an annual meeting hosted by a different university in Australasia each year. This year marks the 14th consecutive meeting. The objective of the workshop s 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 an indepth discussion of methodological and technical issues.

LEW2011 will be held in the Sutherland Room, Holme Building, University of Sydney. There is no cost for participating in the workshop, although registration is required.
