Professor Peter Arcidiacono

The Duke Economics Department is pleased to announce that professor Peter Arcidiacono has been named as one of the 22 new Fellows of the Econometric Society for 2018.   

The Econometrics Society is an international, independent society for the advancement of economic theory by using statistics and mathematics. They are responsible for the publication of the journals Econometrica, Quantitative Economics, and Theoretical Economics, as well as a research Monograph Series. Arcidiacono joins an elite group of academic economists, dating back to the society’s founding of its Fellows in 1933. Fellows are elected by their peers. From the statute of the Econometric Society: "The Fellows represent the highest authority of the Society [art 1.3]" and "to be eligible for nomination as a Fellow, a person must have published original contributions to economic theory or to such statistical, mathematical, or accounting analyses as have a definite bearing on problems in economics. [art 5.2]." 

“I’m surprised and humbled,” said Arcidiacono. With research interests that span applied microeconomics, applied economics, and labor economics, Arcidiacono’s work focuses on the exploration of a variety of subjects, such as structural estimation, affirmative action, minimum wages, teen sex, discrimination, higher education, and dynamic discrete choice models, among others.
