Jahrbücher für Nationalökonomie und Statistik

Journal of Economics and Statistics

Editor In Chief: Peter Winker
Edited by: Thiess Büttner, Regina Riphahn, Werner Smolny,  and Joachim Wagner

The Journal of Economics and Statistics (Jahrbücher für Nationalökonomie und Statistik) is a scientific journal published in Germany since 1863. The journal publishes papers in all fields of economics and applied statistics. A specific focus is on papers combining theory with empirical analyses.
Papers providing conclusions for economic policy in Europe are particularly welcome. Nevertheless, distinguished papers dealing exlusively with economic theory, empirical models, or economic history, will not be excluded from consideration.
The editors invite replication studies focusing on the robustness of empirical findings.

The section Data Observer presents articles on data sets available for empirical research and institutions providing research data. The journal also publishes special issues, short comments, and book reviews.
