VATT is an expert economics research unit

We do high-level scientific research to promote evidence-based policy making. We evaluate the effects of policy measures on individuals, households and firms. The main building blocks of our analyses are large-scale register data sets, profound institutional knowledge and economic theory.

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