Grid-Enabled Micro-Econometric Data Analysis

Recent trends in e-science towards seamless interfacing between remote data locations and remote high performace computing clusters have not yet been widely applied in economics. This pilot project aims to measure and demonstrate the effectiveness of such a systen applied to the micro-econometric analysis of the welfare of ethinic minority groups in the UK. Building on an experimental grid-enabled framework for a macro-economic problem, the project will develop methods of fusing data from complementary data sets in order to allow new research questions to be addressed. The key aims of this project are: (i) to investigate and demonstrate the feasibility of performing grid-enabled micro-econometric analysis by extending an existing e-science framework for macro-economic data analysis; (ii) to investigate the potential of constructing matched/data-fused data from original, separate grid-enabled sources; (iii) to investigate the potential gains of performing modern micro-econometric analysis on high performance computers.
