The goal of the project is to provide new empirical results regarding the role of the income effect in making decisions about the labor supply. The introduction of a child benefit in Poland (Family 500+ program) makes it possible to identify the income effect due to the unique design of the program.
Scientific and applied studies constitute the core activity of the Institute for Structural Research. We conduct all our research projects with a strong commitment to objectivity and methodology. We use the best available data and modern analytical tools. We focus on the labour market, demography, family and social policy, public finances, the healthcare system, energy and climate and macroeconomics. We are particularly interested in the relationship between individual areas and research studies that have a significant impact on public policy.
In this project we cooperate with the HKUST Institute for Emerging Market Studies and the United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research to create new econometric models to predict task content of occupations in a large number of countries.
This project, conducted between August 2019 and January 2020, will consist of updating the model of the Chilean economy and using it to assess the new set of mitigation policies the government aims to implement until 2030 - in order to meet the emission target set in the Nationally Determined Contributions.
