Conference on Research in Income and Wealth
The Conference on Research in Income and Wealth (CRIW) was founded in 1936 to advance the cause of measurement in economics. CRIW brings together economists from government, academe, business, and non-profit organizations to discuss problems of mutual interest. The CRIW is administered by the National Bureau of Economic Research, but membership in the CRIW is independent of NBER affiliation. Membership in the CRIW is by election and is based on a significant contribution to research in income and wealth, a sustained interest in research in this area, and continuing participation in CRIW activities. The principal activity of the CRIW is to hold conferences and workshops which deals with measurement issues in various areas of economics. All events are by invitation only.
