Cemmap is the Centre for Microdata Methods and Practice. Cemmap develops and applies methods for modelling individual behaviour, the influences on it and the impact of policy interventions.
Cemmap conducts research and organises conferences, symposia, workshops and training courses. Academic and professional economists and social scientists from the UK and abroad are welcome at cemmap events.
Cemmap maintains an extensive network of fellows at home and abroad, it has organised 170 training courses and over 80 masterclasses and workshops, and is home to one of the world's leading working papers series in the field of microeconometrics with over 600 titles, many now published in leading journals.
Cemmap is a joint venture by the Department of Economics University College London and the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Its offices are at the IFS in Bloomsbury in central London.
Cemmap was founded in 2000 with a grant from the Leverhulme Trust. In 2007, cemmap became a national Research Centre of the Economic and Social Research Council of the UK (ESRC). In 2011, the ESRC approved a further five years of funding, covering 2012-17.
In May 2017 cemmap was awarded an ESRC Large Research Grant which funds cemmap research from October 2017 through September 2021. This new grant funds part of cemmap's 2007-2017 level of workshop, conference, training and masterclass activities and we seek partners to help continue our work in this area.
