The conference will feature empirical research papers in any area of public economics, with a particular focus on papers that make use of the ALife, DOMINO, MADIP, Single Touch Payroll or other Australian administrative datasets (making best use of the data; the representativeness of the data; tips and tricks for coding variables into useful variables for analysis, etc.) Each paper will be assigned a discussant. The conference will also provide an opportunity to discuss the state of development of Australian administrative data, and for researchers that are making use of large administrative datasets to share their latest research and insights.
