Economic Research & Policy Advice

The economy matters for everybody. At RWI – Leibniz Institute for Economic Research we analyze what happens in the economy, why it happens, and which consequences changes in economic conditions and policies have for the individual and the society as a whole. With its research the Institute assists policy-makers and provides a basis for decision-making. It also assesses political measures. Furthermore, as a publicly funded research institute RWI wants to inform about economic issues, in a way that furthers a better understanding of economic processes among the wider public. Hence, RWI’s research approach is multidimensional, ranging from the individual to the global economy in its research divisions "Labor Markets, Education, Population”, “Health Economics”, “Environment and Resources” and “Macroeconomics and Public Finance”.

The Research Data Centre provides researchers with latest data. RWI is a member of the Leibniz Association. It is funded by the Federal Government and the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia. This public contribution accounts for almost two thirds of the Institute's total revenues. In addition, there is income from research contracts, which also originates predominantly from public clients - in particular the federal and state ministries. »
