Establishment Microdata for Economic Research and Policy Analysis: Looking beyond the Aggregates

Author

  • McGuckin, Robert H

Abstract

The importance and usefulness of establishment microdata for economic research and policy analysis is outlined and contrasted with traditional establishment-based products of statistical agencies--aggregate cross-section tabulations. Using examples of research and analysis conducted at the U.S. Census Bureau's Center for Economic Studies, which offers opportunities for researchers from academia and government to access confidential economic microdata, it is argued that statistical agencies must begin to seriously rethink the way they view establishment data products.
