Description of Research

Summary Statement of Research Interests

Professor Ridder studies econometrics, with a particular interest in microeconometrics and its applications. In past years these applications have been in labor economics, public finance, economic development, economic demography, transportation research, and the economics of sports. His methodological interests are the (nonparametric) identification of statistical and economic structures from observed distributions (mainly in duration data and discrete choice data), models and estimation methods for duration data and panel data, (selectively) missing data, and causal inference.
