LIS/LWS User Conferences

LIS has been providing data on income and wealth for comparative research since 1983. Over the years, Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) or Luxembourg Wealth Study (LWS) databases have made possible hundreds of publications, including many articles in top journals.

This long lasting activity would have not been possible without the users’ community. In order to strengthen this community by favouring exchanges of ideas on research strategies, LIS organizes a LIS/LWS Users Conference, giving researchers the opportunity to present papers based on our databases.

The aim of the conference is to bring together scholars using the LIS/LWS datasets and to foster a dialogue between users and the core team/discussants.

We are interested in receiving papers on different topics that can be studied using our databases, from inequality and poverty to labour market participation, from saving patterns to class composition. Papers with cross-comparative perspective or an overview over time are particularly welcomed.
