Databases, publications, methods and working papers
The primary analytical tool used by DeLMAR is meta-regression analysis, the statistical analysis of all relevant and comparable research on a specific scientific issue or, in other words, it is quantitative research synthesis. We seek to estimate genuine empirical effects, to understand research heterogeneity and to correct specification and selection biases endemic in economics and the social sciences.
