The Research Division of STATEC, the National Statistical Institute of Luxembourg, is a team of economists active in the fields of productivity, entrepreneurship and well-being studies.
The team’s research contributes to the understanding of Luxembourg's social and economic evolution in a comparative perspective, to the international scientific debate, and to new perspectives for policy making.

Our network 

The team’s research activities, which benefit from several international and national partnerships, are evaluated yearly by a Scientific Council formed by recognised international experts. STATEC RESEARCH (RED) also hosts Master and Doctoral students, as well as visiting scholars. Team members participate in working groups set by international institutions such as the OECD, EUROSTAT, and the European Commission.

Research areas 


The team provides sound measures of productivity for the national economy and for Luxembourg's industries. Such measures can be used to track the dynamics of productivity in Luxembourg and to identify the country's international position.


RED participates in the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, an international program aimed at collecting Comparative data on entrepreneurship, which is a driver of economic growth and job creation.

Labour market

This research examines the implications of globalization on employment in Luxembourg using trade and firm-level data.

Well-being and quality of life

The team develops new ways of assessing the social and economic development of Luxembourg, beyond traditional income-based measures of welfare.
The team implemented the project PIBien-être, aimed at monitoring and assessing people’s quality of life in Luxembourg.  STATEC Research’s participates in the StudiaLUX project, in partnership with LISER and the University of Luxembourg. The European Values Study (EVS) is conducted in Luxembourg as part of this project. More information can be found here.

Dissemination of research 

Research results are disseminated through conferences, seminars, and peer-reviewed publications. Papers of the RED’s researchers have appeared in journals such as Economic Modelling, European Economic Review, World Development, Social Indicators Research, Ecological Economics, Small Business Economics, Kyklos and Macroeconomic Dynamics. In addition, RED contributes to the public economic debate by organising workshops and seminars, and by compiling reports on issues of crucial interest to the public and the policy makers.
