The NCER is a research organisation dedicated to enhancing econometric research and to disseminating the outcomes to policymakers, business professionals, and the academic community.
This research embraces all forms of econometrics, including the development of new methodologies, estimating quantitative models of economic and financial behaviour, assessing the effects of public policy and projecting the effects of alternative policy proposals.
One of the main objectives of the NCER is to collate a variety of different resources and provide them online so that they can be freely accessed in order to assist in teaching, research and policy evaluation.
The historical archive is primarily a data repository which students of econometrics and academics can access. The data stored here relates to important papers by Australian authors to enable their results to be reproduced. Where possible, a commentary on some aspects on the paper or a historical perspective on the work, together with author biographies are provided.
