About the DREAM group
The DREAM Group provides research based analyses of the Danish economy. Our analyses cover issues from most of the core areas of the economy: Macroeconomics, fiscal sustainability, demographics, education, climate and energy, the housing market, the labour market, pensions, etc. The analyses are used by ministries, commissions, NGOs, think tanks, etc.
About our toolbox
DREAM employs 18-20 professional economists.
We maintain and develop a set of tools used for analysis of the Danish economy. 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.
