National Bureau of Economic Research

A private organization that conducts research into how the American economy works. Its goal is to provide non-partisan analysis to policymakers, businesspersons, academics, and the wider public. NBER divides its research into four main components: the development of new ways to make statistical measurements, estimating quantitative data on economic behavior, researching possible effects of policy proposals, and researching the effects of policy alternatives. It is particularly well-known for chronicling the beginning and end dates of American recessions.
