Because econometrics is a major research tool for empirical economics, the main objective of the department is to extend existing econometric knowledge and to apply it to economic problems and economic data. The department is wide ranging (as shown by its main fields of research see window 1) : it covers many fields of theoretical as well as empirical econometrics. Indeed, on one hand, because statistical methods used in econometrics have become more and more diverse, various statistical techniques for estimating, testing, and forecasting are studied in the department (non-parametric and nonlinear modelling, bootstrap, inequality measurement…). On the other hand, not only macro-econometric techniques are studied, but also individual behaviors of consumers and producers are analyzed ; therefore, the domains of application of the department are various and extended to finance, to environment and health, to labour market, to contingent valuation, to inequality, housing market…
A seminar of statistics and econometrics is held in Marseille twice a month (see window 3).
