Replication of Empirical Econometric Studies



Prof. Dr. Thomas Kneib and Jan H. Höffler


University of Göttingen


November 1-2, 2012 and January 31-February 01, 2013



The Chair of Statistics at Georg-August-Universität Göttingen offers a seminar „Replication of empirical econometric studies” for all doctoral students of economics or agricultural economics at the MAGKS partner universities. Our aim is to help young researchers with their own empirical research by replicating articles related to the participants’ fields of interest. We have compiled a comprehensive archive of articles suitable for replication we can offer to support the choice of suitable articles and can also build on experience from many previous seminars.

Our research on replication is funded by the Institute for New Economic Thinking (see http://ineteconomics.org/grants/replication-economics.

We plan to replicate a number of studies and to make our results accessible on a wiki-based website that will allow everyone to join the discussion of published research. Our first replication working papers can be found here:


As they were done by bachelor students, replication is taken in a rather narrow sense here, but in the doctoral seminar we can go beyond this to include not only narrow replications but also extensions comprising additional robustness checks, modified analyses or analyses with new data.

If you want to join, please let us know about your fields of interest.

The planned dates for the course are November 1-2, 2012, and January 31-February 1, 2013, 10-16h. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to participate but the schedule does not exactly fit you. We have some flexibility in this respect. The seminar language will be English.
