"Mathematics reveals hidden patterns that help us understand the world around us. Now much more than arithmetic and geometry, mathematics today is a diverse discipline that deals with data, measurements, and observations from science; with inference, deduction, and proof; and with mathematical models of natural phenomena, of human behavior, and of social systems."


-Everybody Counts: A report to the Nation on the Future of Mathematics Education", (1989) (Mathematical Sciences Education Board)
"Statistics is the mathematical science involved in the application of quantitative principles to the collection, analysis, and presentation of numerical data. The practice of statistics utilizes data from some population in order to describe it meaningfully, to draw conclusions from it, and make informed decisions. The population may be a community, an organization, a production line, a service counter, or a phenomenon such as the weather. Statisticians determine which quantitative model is correct for a given type of problem and they decide what kinds of data should be collected and examined. Applied statistics concerns the application of the general methodology to particular problems."

  • The aim of the International Conference on Applied Economics (ICOAE) conferences is to bring together economists from different fields of Applied Economic Research in order to share methods and ideas. For ICOAE  contributions are welcome from all areas of Economic Science (id est all subject areas included in EconLit) that use applied econometrics as their methods of analyses, with special interest in advances in longitudinal data.  Indicative fields include Applied Micro- and Macroeconomics, Applied Financial Economics, Applied  Agricultural Economics etcetera.

  • The Conference Series of The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER)

The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) was founded one hundred years ago, on January 23, 1920, to "encourage ... investigation, research, and discovery, and the application of knowledge ... in the fields of economic, social, and industrial science." At the recent American Economic Association Annual Meeting, a panel of NBER research associates documented and reviewed the organization’s contributions to economic science
