Research based analyses of the Danish economy.
That's why we're here.

About us

The DREAM group develops tools to provide research based analyses of the Danish economy. Our toolbox contains economic models, demographic projections, and other data-driven analyses. Our users are typically ministries, NGOs, and think tanks.

Economic models

Since 1997, DREAM has built five economic models. The models are used to project and forecast the Danish economy in both the short and long term as well as to evaluate effects of economic policy. In addition, an environmental economic model is under development.

Demographic projections

DREAM has developed three projection models that project population size, educational level and labour supply. The three models are closely related, as they are run sequentially. The projections are used independently to evaluate policy effects. In addition, the projections provide a part of the data for our economic models (the DREAM-model-system).
