The Centre for Microdata Methods and Practice (CeMMAP) is a world centre for research into the methods that reveal the nature of human decision processes using observational data. Its work is widely read, highly respected and influential amongst practitioners.
Faced with limited resources in an uncertain world, societies need guidance to attain good outcomes in the future. Governments need to know what works and what does not. Firms need to know the most effective strategies for succeeding in a dynamic marketplace. Individuals need to know what risks they face, what opportunities exist. Social and economic policy, and indeed individual decisions, cannot be undertaken successfully without high quality information and robust reliable analysis.
Research areas are divided between methods and practice. Choose one below to see the current strands of research.
