Economics & Data

Applied economics that works!


Empirical information forms the basis of our work. We gather information through representative surveys, case studies, econometric analysis and labour market forecasts.


Methods and statistical indicators we developed have been used for years in economic and labour market policy.


We have worked with data from international sources (ILO, OECD, Worldbank), national statistical offices, microdata, and administrative or big data.


Our team members have more than 20 years of experience in the field of empirical data analysis, labour market information and skills governance.


The Economics & Data ED23 GmbH is a successor organisation of the Economix Research & Consulting Partnership, which was split up in 2023 into a qualitative part, Economix Research & Consulting Nicola Düll Beratende Volkswirtin (WWW) and a quantitative part, the Economics & Data ED23 GmbH. In this new company, we continue the quantitative projects with the experienced team of employees, such as the IAB job survey, the labour market forecasts (Cedefop, Bertelsmann Foundation) as well as statistical support work for the European Training Foundation (ETF Turin).

Our research profile focuses on the long-term and structural development of labour markets and related employment, social and education policies. The mostly quantitative analyses and forecasts are carried out in an economic, social and institutional context. The research projects often have an international context or are directly international comparative studies.


We have a wide network of partners. For surveys in Germany, especially computer-assisted telephone interviews (CATI), we usually work with T.I.P. Piehl & Partner in Trier, our partner in the IAB job survey. Internationally, we have a wide range of partners who complement our expertise. We have a long-standing relationship with Cambridge Econometrics, which enables us to undertake major projects such as the European Skills Forecast. With the IER we collaborate on many projects in the area of labour market information and skills. Panteia has been a partner in several European projects. We have provided expertise and experts to organisations such as FGB, Transtec, ICF and EOND within their larger framework contracts. We have cooperated with a number of national experts in different countries, on whom we can fall back when needed.


With our expertise, we usually have clients from the public sphere: ministries, international organisations, and also foundations. We have worked for organisations of the European Union (DG Employment, European Training Foundation, Cedefop), ILO, UNESCO, OECD, the Bertelsmann Foundation, and ministries in several countries. We have worked on projects in Europe, the EU partner countries (Balkan countries, Turkey, SEMED, Eastern Partnership), the Middle East, Africa, South America, and Asia within our expertise.
