VATT is an expert economics research unit

At VATT we evaluate and forecast the impact of policy actions using a wide range of register data and modern statistical methods. Our particular strength lies in research that aims to analyse the economic effects of policies on the behaviour of individuals, households or firms and on people’s well-being.

Our research focuses on five broad themes. For further information on the work in progress and the latest publications in each theme, go to the research theme page.
