The Amsterdam Center for Applied Microeconometrics (ACAM), founded in January 2015, is a joint research center of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the VU University Amsterdam. The researchers participating in the center are specialized in empirical research in labor economics, health economics, family economics, and the economics of education. A broad range of microeconometric techniques are applied with the goal to achieve the most credible identification of causal effects. The researchers have experience with, for example, reduced-form and structural estimation, using large administrative data, and designing and conducting randomized experiments. There is particular interest in evaluating public policies related to education, health and labor.
