Economics is a social science that focuses on the behavior of and interactions among economic agents and how economies work. Microeconomics examines the behavior of and interactions among agents (consumers, patients, households, voters, firms, etc.) in different institutional frameworks and studies how such institutions are or could be changed. Macroeconomics analyzes the entire economy and issues affecting it. Most research at Örebro University is policy-oriented empirical applied microeconomic analysis. The researchers work together with researchers in Statistics and collaborate with researchers in other social sciences and health sciences. The empirical analysis is often based on micro data from public registers and surveys.
