Abstract netting in green and red

Our mission is to create and make accessible novel data on the dynamics of the labor markets, we work with research networks and statistical agencies, developing appropriate statistics to inform policy makers, researchers, and simply people seeking knowledge. We emphasize and meet the requirements of stakeholders: users as well as providers, balancing the utility of the data with the confidentiality of the people and businesses whose activities the data describe.

Graduate Teaching Awards

"An integral part of [Cornell's] undergraduate and graduate programs is the teaching done by our graduate students.  The experience gained by our graduate students is extremely valuable to their economics training and to their job market prospects.  The [Economics] department takes seriously its role in cultivating future educators and recognizes the hard work that goes into both being an effective teaching assistant and a top-notch researcher who can complete a high quality thesis in a timely fashion.  We are very fortunate to have many graduate students who do an outstanding job.
