Who We Are
The NHEPL is a teaching space. Here you will find trustworthy and reliable information on the state of the regional economy in which we live, with explanations as to their relevance as well as their limitations.
Within the laboratory, students examine, test, deploy, and explain socioeconomic conditions and performance indicators.The students are seniors in the Economics program at the University of New Haven. Although the students work under the supervision of members of the Economics faculty they are individually responsible for their interpretation and analysis. We work closely and interactively with the UNH Economics Collective – a student run knowledge generator – that joins the broader community engaged in common efforts and a shared vision: to be relevant.
A big focus of our work is on formulating, constructing and examining non-traditional econometrics. These metrics are constructed by deploying traditional empirical methods as well as data and text mining methods. Our interest is establishing whether these metrics can enhance and improve our understanding of the southern region of Connecticut.
