2019 Comparative Analysis of Enterprise Data (CAED) Conference

May 17-19, 2019

Stephen M. Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA


CAED invites submissions of paper proposals for its 15th conference on research using enterprise microdata to be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  The conference promotes scientific research using enterprise microdata on a variety of topics and from different (and inter) disciplinary approaches. The conference is a unique meeting point for producers and users of these data, including as statisticians, survey methodologists, economists and econometricians, sociologists and other social scientists.  It is also an opportunity for policymakers to acquaint themselves with the newest research results and policy evidence and evaluation in this rapidly expanding field.

The conference will feature keynote presentations by Eric Bartelsman (Tinbergen Institute), John Haltiwanger (University of Maryland), and Nina Pavcnik (Dartmouth College).

Submit: Either a full paper with an abstract of 400-600 words or an extended abstract of 800-1600 words, including a sufficient description of the data used in the analysis and the key results. Include title, authors, affiliations, and the email address of the corresponding author.
