The Purdue University Research Center in Economics (PURCE) is home to select Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr. School of Business faculty who use empirical microeconometric methods in their research, and students trained in these methods.
We create and share data-driven insights into how laws, regulations and government programs affect the market economy and the well-being of individuals and society.
PURCE engages policymakers, community groups, fellow academics, business leaders and more by hosting economic policy luncheons, webinars and other information sessions featuring PURCE faculty discussing their research and guest lectures by distinguished economics researchers.
Our research has several focus areas: competition, crime, education, fiscal policy, health, innovation, market solutions, monetary policy, regulation, state policies, trade, and work.
