The African Microeconomic Research Unit
The African Microeconomic Research Unit (AMERU) brings together South African and African researchers to conduct rigorous quantitative research on African microeconomic issues, specifically on labour markets, firm dynamics and education. The research programme has a number of core aims:
to produce rigorous data-driven research that is relevant for policy makers;
to build networks between South African, African and international researchers working on Africa;
to develop research capacity for the analysis of microeconomic data.
