Inflation, Money, Output

Frankfurt. 2018

The papers collected in this volume reflect on origins of data collection and statistics from an archival perspective. Not all data are the same and it is important to take into consideration by whom they where collected, when and to what purpose when drawing conclusions for research and policy making. A variety of different experts compare their experiences and show novel ways in which these date collections can be used.
