Nordic comparative micro-data laboratory for analyses of common shocks: The case of Covid-19

Date of project : 2021 - Project ongoing

This is joint project with Frisch Centre and Aarhus and Uppsala universities where the goal is to create a harmonized set-up for Nordic register data so that they can be used for cross-country analyses.


The project will create procedures and code that will enable the researchers to use the register data from Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden to conduct identical analyses. In this project this set-up will be used to analyze the policies that these countries used to respond the Covid19 shock in three areas: schools, labor market, and firms.

The research is funded by: Norwegian Research Council
