Behavioral Measurement Conference

Precise measurement is a hallmark of empirical scientific practice. Going back to the intellectual tradition of the revealed preference paradigm, empirical economic research is classically characterized by its strong emphasis of choice-based, behavioral approaches and corresponding measurement protocols.

In recent years, the spectrum of measured characteristics (different sorts of preferences, behavioral biases, as well as beliefs) and features of implementation have rapidly increased. However, the degree of standardization of actual measurement protocols is still in its infancy and systematic comparative evidence rather scarce, e.g., regarding the validation of those measures in the field. In addition, the rise of novel types of data (e.g., choice-process data) also call for revisiting and advancing the conceptual foundations of behavioral measurement.

By starting the “Behavioral Measurement Conference” (bi-annual series), SAFE together with FLEX aims to lay the grounds for institutionalizing an active research community systematically taking up these issues and fostering and advancing the development and utilization of behavioral measurement tools in empirical social science research.

Please note that registration is required.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at our event!
