The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) creates and maintains a wealth of data that can inform high-quality research on the most pressing policy issues in environmental economics. However identifying, accessing, and understanding these data can be a formidable task. On May 3, the Brookings Center on Regulations and Markets is hosting a workshop to help young scholars overcome these issues.

The workshop is specifically aimed at graduate students who are interested in environmental economics and policy; who want to learn more about issues of current regulatory importance; and who want to understand the data that has been and can be used to explore these issues. The program will feature agency personnel who will give an overview of various data sets and researchers who have used EPA data in their graduate work. In addition, scholars from Brookings and academic institutions across the country will discuss their experience with EPA data. Attendees will gain a better appreciation of the types of data EPA creates and maintains, how to access and use that data, and how to match research questions to the data.

Registration is open to current graduate students (pre-docs and post-docs are also welcome to attend) and will be held over Zoom.
