Call for Papers: Measurement and Tracking of
Subjective Well-Being for Aging Research
July 28, 2018, Cambridge, MA.



The NBER will host a conference on the Measurement and Tracking of Subjective Well-Being for Aging Research on July 28, 2018, in Cambridge, MA.

The aim of the conference is to develop future researchers in economics who are prepared to use the measurement and tracking of SWB in the service of aging research by incorporating methodologies from psychology, economics, and other disciplines. It is organized by Arthur Stone, Daniel Benjamin, Kristen Cooper, Ori Heffetz, and Stefan Schneider.

The 2018 conference is funded by the NBER Center for Aging and Health Research (PIs: Anne Case & David Cutler). The meeting organizers are applying for NIH funding and hope to hold annual meetings in future years.

If you have a paper you would like to submit for the first conference, please upload the abstract and paper to: http://papers.nber.org/confsubmit/backend/cfp?id=SWBs18 by April 19.

Invitations and logistical information will be sent out in May. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Carl Beck in the NBER's conference department at 617-588-0380 or cbeck@nber.org.
