The Review of Economics and Statistics is a peer-reviewed academic journal covering applied quantitative economics,[1] now called econometrics. It was established in 1919 as The Review of Economic Statistics[1][2] and obtained its current name in 1948.[3]

The inaugural issue stated the purpose of the journal to be:

promote the collection, criticism, and interpretation of economic statistics ... by investigation of the sources and probable accuracy of existing statistics ... and by developing the application to economic statistics of modern methods of statistical analysis which have hitherto been utilized more extensively in other sciences than in economics.[4]

The journal is edited at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government and published by MIT Press.[1] Its current editors are Philippe Aghion, Amitabh Chandra, Gordon Hanson, Asim Ijaz Khwaja, and Mark W. Watson.[5]
