Our Approach

The Economic Research Center has three interlinking tracks of policy research, data analytics, and data governance.

Policy research track

We explore policy issues, articulate key policy questions, and identify strategic priorities.

Data analytics track

We map the relevant data, develop data analysis to address policy questions, translate the results into policy insights, and provide actionable intelligence for policy makers.

Data governance track

We facilitate fluid data flow from multiple sources and safeguard data governance in a responsible and ethical manner.
