At Hideo Akabayashi’s research lab in Keio University’s Faculty of Economics, research is being conducted primarily on education economics and family economics. Through longitudinal study of parents and children, unique panel data is built aiming at understanding how changes in family finances and government policies affect children’s outcomes and wellbeing. In addition, economic experiments and other techniques are also used to analyze the effectiveness of Japan’s education policy, and to research the causes of disparity in education levels.
