Applied Economic Analysis

The Applied Economic Analysis includes both business cycle and growth analysis. The aim of business cycle analysis is to describe the course of the business cycle as accurately and promptly as possible. Its results are of direct relevance for politics, administration and companies. This is only possible to a limited extent with the available database in Liechtenstein. The goal of the Applied Economic Analysis is therefore to contribute to improved data availability through various modules. In contrast to the business cycle analysis, the growth analysis examines the long-term economic development. As a result, the Applied Economic Analysis aims to establish an independent, systematic and permanently relevant economic and growth evaluation for Liechtenstein. The Applied Economic Analysis has been supported by the Government of the Principality of Liechtenstein since 2020 and complements the macroeconomic basic research already existing at the Liechtenstein Institute.
