Center for Micro-Economic Policy Research
CMEPR is a forum for policy-relevant research using micro-economic and micro-econometric methods. Hosted by GMU’s Schar School of Policy and Government, CMEPR organizes regular seminars through a series called the “Micro-Economic Policy Seminar” (MEPS). MEPS speakers include prominent micro-economists from inside and outside George Mason University, in particular drawing on the many universities, agencies, and research organizations in the DC area.
MEPS is sometimes organized as a micro-econometrics reading group, in which students present selected papers, with a focus on design of research question and the types of data and econometrics methods used to address the question.
