The Economic Statistics Centre of Excellence (ESCoE) is a hub of world-leading expertise built around the analysis of emerging and future issues in measuring the economy. We believe economic measurement is centre stage to formulating economic policy and to improving economic outcomes.
Supported by the UK Office for National Statistics, ESCoE is the UK’s first-ever dedicated academic centre of expertise for economic measurement and one of just a handful around the world.
The Centre’s ambition is to be an international point of reference for measurement research, supporting cultural change in the delivery of economic statistics. Our approach is clear. It involves building expertise, increasing collaboration between statistics producers, academia, policymakers and other data users, and raising the profile of economic measurement issues.
We do this by addressing both theoretical and practical questions that arise in describing the modern economy, relying on our international network of Research Associates, and investing in the next generation of experts. We carry out our research in dialogue with statistics producers and promote constructive discussion through workshops and conferences.
There are many people involved in delivering our research programme. We bring together a partnership of leading UK and international institutions, academics and researchers. Hosted at King’s Business School (King’s College London), ESCoE is delivered through a collaboration between King’s Business School, the Fraser of Allander Institute (University of Strathclyde), the Institute for Fiscal Studies, innovation foundation Nesta, the University of Cambridge and the University of New South Wales, working with our research partners.
