Sheffield Household Finance Research Group
The Sheffield Household Finance Research Group empirically explores a range of aspects relating to household financial behaviours and outcomes. The area of household finance has received an increased amount of attention over the past two decades and remains high on both policy and research agendas.
We are committed to producing real world empirical evidence relating to policy relevant research questions. Members of the Household Finance Research Group have expertise in the following areas:
- Financial portfolio allocations
- Household debt accumulation and saving decisions
- Intersections between the macro-economy and household finances
- Poverty and inequality
- Subjective financial position
