Chair of Empirical Economic Research
Welcome to the website of the Chair of Empirical Economic Research!
The members of the chair focus on the empirical analysis of household saving behaviour, pension plan choice and insurance decisions as well as health economic questions in general. Methodologically, our emphasis lies on behavioral approaches and their econometric implementation, the design and analysis of household surveys and the measurement of preferences and expectations in surveys and laboratory experiments. Moreover we engage in the development of econometric models for latent variables and the related estimation techniques.
In teaching, we offer applied econometrics courses at all levels - from introductory undergraduate to PhD courses at the Munich Graduate School of Economics. Furthermore Prof. Winter is part of the faculty of the the executive-degree-program "Philosophie Politik Wirtschaft".
