  • An illustrative example of the real world impact CAER’s research is having is the project undertaken by the Economic Measurement Initiative on the use of scanner data in measuring price changes. From the December 2017 quarter, the Australian Bureau of Statistics implemented the recommended methodological changes to maximise the use of transactions data to compile the CPI. This has come about as a result of UNSW-based research, conducted with the financial support of the Australian Research Council through the Linkage Grants program, in collaboration with the ABS and Statistics Netherlands. For further details, see the following and references therein:
  • ABS (2017), “An implementation plan to maximise the use of transactions data in the CPI,” Information Paper 6401.0.60.004, Australian Bureau of Statistics, Canberra. 
  • I was part of a team that jointly won a major new UK prize in economics – the Indigo Prize 2017. The Prize challenged entrants to consider how to measure economic activity in a 21st century economy. I collaborated with colleagues from Imperial College, Wellesley College, LUISS (Rome), the Georgetown Centre for Business and Public Policy, and NESTA, to submit an entry titled “Improving GDP: Demolishing, Repointing or Extending?”. The aim of the competition was to catalyse a debate about how and what factors are currently measured given the evolving economies, technology and skills bases, and what should now be taken into consideration in official economic statistics that measure the health, size and growth of a modern economy.
