Our research

We are proud of our research at Bristol, with 97% of our economics and econometrics research rated either 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent' (REF, 2021).

The School of Economics hosts four Research Groups, with strengths across the board in microeconomic theory, macroeconomics, econometrics and applied microeconomics. Our research environment also boasts a vibrant workshop and seminar programme.

We have been awarded Legacy Centre Status by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) for our Centre for Evidence-based Public Services (CEPS) which aims to deliver policy impact through conducting data-intensive research on public services, including health, education and welfare reform.

And, we are host to the Economics Observatory (ECO), which draws on UK-wide expertise to answer economic questions arising from the Covid-19 pandemic.
