Jochem’s research focusses on the field of applied econometrics. He currently is looking at the influence of expectations on economic behaviour. The elderly for example base their decision on wether to spend money or save it on their life expectancy. But how can we use those expecations succesfully in economic models? For his research Jochem uses large datasets that track households over a long period of time. He is currently working on using his experience with data from the LISS-panel to predict the outcome of the National Elections.
