The NBER is announcing the Robert Summers Economic Measurement Fellowship

To promote research on economic measurement and to strengthen ties between the academic and practitioner communities working in this area, the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) and the Conference on Research on Income and Wealth (CRIW) will sponsor five fellowships for economic statisticians working in government statistical agencies and international organizations to attend the CRIW meeting at the 2023 NBER Summer Institute in Cambridge, MA.  The CRIW meeting will take place on July 17-18, 2023.  Fellows will participate in the research meeting and have an opportunity to interact with leading scholars and practitioners in the field of economic measurement.  This fellowship program celebrates the intellectual legacy of long-time CRIW member and University of Pennsylvania faculty member Robert Summers, who pioneered the study of international price and output comparisons.
