Dernière mise à jour le :08/10/2020

Economie et Statistique, published by Insee, was founded in 1969. Initially monthly and aimed at disseminating the work of the statisticians and researchers of the Institute, the journal is now widely open onto the contributions of researchers from other horizons and has evolved into an academic journal. There are eight issues a year, which may be grouped in double or triple special issues.

Articles are published under the responsibility of their authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of Insee or other institutions.

In 2017, from the issue number 491-492, Economie et Statistique becomes Economie et Statistique / Economics and Statistics
