The Great Recession highlighted the severe limitations of relying on macro data to prevent and respond to financial systemic risk and macroeconomic shocks. Micro-based National Accounts will allow the use of micro data in guiding an integrated approach to monetary, financial stability and consumer protection policies. The project will fill the enormous gap between the existence of the unique raw micro data available in Sweden and the possibility of using it for academic research and applied work. The project has already obtained the interest and involvement of Riksbanken, Finansinspektionen and Statistics Sweden.
The Institute of Micro Data (MiDa) is launched!
