Economic Development and Cultural Change (EDCC) is a multidisciplinary journal publishing studies that use modern theoretical and empirical approaches to examine both determinants and effects of various dimensions of economic development and cultural change. EDCC’s focus is on empirical papers with analytic underpinnings, concentrating on micro-level evidence, that use appropriate data to test theoretical models and to explore policy impacts related to a broad range of topics within economic development.  EDCC publishes both papers with new insights as well as carefully executed replications that explore the robustness of results to different data, diverse model specifications, or ways of estimation.
