CERGE-EI faculty Nikolas Mittag (jointly with professor Bruce D. Meyer) has been awarded the 2019 Dennis J. Aigner Award by the Journal of Econometrics.

The award recognizes the best paper in empirical economics published in the JoE in 2017 or 2018.

The paper "Misclassification in Binary Choice Models" deals with the ways in which flawed data can be adjusted to provide more accurate information.

Nikolas has joined CERGE-EI in 2013. He is mainly interested in evaluations of government programs, applied microeconomics, labor economics, and measurement error issues.
