9780123704894: Measurement in Economics: A Handbook

Measurement in Economics: a Handbook aims to serve as a source, reference, and teaching supplement for quantitative empirical economics, inside and outside the laboratory. Covering an extensive range of fields in economics: econometrics, actuarial science, experimental economics, index theory, national accounts, and economic forecasting, it is the first book that takes measurement in economics as its central focus. It shows how different and sometimes distinct fields share the same kind of measurement problems and so how the treatment of these problems in one field can function as a guidance in other fields. This volume provides comprehensive and up-to-date surveys of recent developments in economic measurement, written at a level intended for professional use by economists, econometricians, statisticians and social scientists.

*Integrative approach of measurement in economics
*Multi-disciplinary chapters
*Research practice orientation
*Up-to-date survey of measurement literature in economics and econometrics
