Individual Welfare Analysis based on Behavioral Economics


Welfare analysis

The aim of the project is to analyze individual welfare, based on behavioral economics.

EOS programme

IWABE is funded by the EOS programme, which promotes joint research between researchers in the Flemish and French-speaking community in Belgium. It is a continuation of our MEqIn project funded by BELSPO.

Four research groups

The project is conducted by researchers from four universities:

The MEqIn data

Data to analyze well-being

The MEqIn dataset has been collected in 2016, with the purpose of measuring and comparing in different ways individual well-being .

Belgian households

The dataset includes slightly more than 2000 Belgian households. For each surveyed household, we interviewed all the adults in the household and gathered some data on their children.

Novel data collection

The IWABE project aims to add several modules to the MEqIn dataset, with the focus on collecting data on non well-behaved preferences.

Please contact Bart Capéau to find out more about the data and access to it.
