Economies are sophisticated social systems characterised by pervasive uncertainty, which makes agents’ behaviours and systemic outcomes difficult to predict. The study of such systems thus requires new datasets and more reliable statistical techniques. This is a necessary requirement for enabling policymakers to assess and regulate economic performance vis-à-vis uncertainty.

This special issue aims to attract papers to raise a rigorous scientific debate on the many interconnections between uncertainty and socio-economic performance, by focusing on the tools offered by modern quantitative socio-economic science.

  • Measuring and communicating uncertainty
