The objective of this programme is the study of behaviour and decision-making processes at individual level that are observed/taken within the boundaries of public sector organisations. These include among others: determinants of well-being, job search, reporting, peer effects, and supervision.
Work consists of literature reviews and data analysis leading to the production of publishable output such as academic articles and reports. The analysis of data is mainly centred on the APS Censuses, but these may be combined with other public data sources such as the Australian Censuses and HILDA. Knowledge of basic econometrics is highly desirable. Training will be provided.
