Database Use Tip: NBER Working Papers. National Bureau of Economic Research

Founded in 1920, the National Bureau of Economic Research is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan research organization dedicated to advancing an understanding of how the economy works. The goal of the NBER is to create and distribute unbiased economic research among public policymakers, professionals, and the academic community. The website proudly states that "sixteen of the 31 American Nobel Prize winners in Economics and six of the past Chairmen of the President's Council of Economic Advisers have been researchers at the NBER." NBER researchers are leaders in their fields.

Each NBER Working Paper is listed under one or more programs. These programs are:
Asset Pricing
Corporate Finance
Development of the American Economy
Economics of Education
Economic Fluctuations and Growth
Health Care
Industrial Organization
International Finance and Macroeconomics
