Economics Laboratory

Welcome to the Economics Laboratory at IIT Kanpur. Located in the New Core Lab Complex, it provides access to state-of-the-art technology and updated databases for research and teaching in Economics.

Currently we have 42 terminals of advanced configuration, installed with the latest versions of STATA, EViews, RATS/CATS, Maple, WinEdt and Microsoft Office. In addition, the central server provides access to Matlab and Mathematica. The Economics Lab also maintains an updated database of the National Sample Survey and Annual Survey of Industries and subscribes to the CEIC India Premium Database and GTAP. CMIE database, provided directly by the Institute, can also be accessed from the Lab terminals. To top it all, the softwares and databases provided by the lab can be accessed via a virtual desktop environment from anywhere within the campus. The Economics lab is very useful for running practical sessions in Econometric Analysis. Instructors regularly use it for lab-based UG/PG courses in Economics/Mathematics. It is also very popular amongst our doctoral students for research purposes. Mode of access (department/institute/outside users): Access to the lab can be requested for teaching/research purposes. Please raise a request through the Central Request System at or you may get in touch with the Lab In-Charge directly.
