Abstract

Administrative registers constitute valuable, yet to a large extent unexplored, sources of knowledge about human behaviour. In this paper, we discuss how register data can contribute to scientific progress within the field of empirical labour market economics. The discussion is founded on our own experience derived from the Norwegian Frisch Centre Database. We argue that access to register data opens up new and challenging avenues for future research, particularly with respect to the identification and estimation of "causal" effects. Efficient utilisation of register data requires development of new methodological approaches and new statistical and computational techniques. Copyright 2003 Royal Economic Society.
