    3rd conference of the International Association for Applied Econometrics in Bicocca, 22-25 June 2016

    The third annual conference of the International Association for Applied Econometrics will be held at the University of Milano-Bicocca (Italy), on June 22-25, 2016.

    The main aims of IAAE are to advance the education of the public in the subject of econometrics and its applications to a variety of fields in economics, in particular, but not exclusively, by advancing and supporting research in that field, and disseminating the results of such useful research to the public.

    The conference will bring together leading researchers in the field and will be a major forum where all aspects of econometrics (theory and practice) will be discussed and debated.

    The conference Program Chairs are Mark Watson (Princeton University) and Thierry Magnac (Toulouse School of Economics).

    Title: Analyzing the EuroVotePlus Experiment

    Date: 7th October 2015 at noon

    Palce: building U7, second floor, economic seminar room

    Abstract: This paper reports on an online experiment that took place in several European countries during the three weeks before the 2014 elections for the European Parliament. We created a website where visitors could obtain information about the electoral rules used in different European Member States for this election. Participants were then invited to cast (simulated) ballots for the election according to three voting rules: closed list proportional representation, open list proportional representation with preferential voting, and open list proportional representation with cumulative voting and panachage. Participants were also invited to think about, and experiment with, the idea of electing some members of the European Parliament through pan-European party lists. The data gathered from this study enable researchers to consider the effects of electoral systems on outcomes in individual countries, and also to investigate the potential popularity and effects of Europe-wide European Parliament constituencies.
