In today’s highly-competitive business climate, it is vital that economists and analysts possess a firm grasp of the economic data that factor into business decisions, drive economic modeling, and influence policy debates. Understanding how the data are constructed is a prerequisite for accurate interpretation and analysis.
Now in its 14th year, the Economic Measurement Seminar (EMS) presented by The NABE Foundation is a convenient, cost-effective program designed to strengthen your knowledge of economic statistics and analytical techniques, enhancing your ability to add value in your workplace.
The EMS pairs expert data producers with prominent data users to provide you with an insightful view of how data are compiled and how they are used by leading analysts. EMS attendees earn the Certificate in Economic Measurement and enjoy numerous opportunities to network with presenters and colleagues!
