The Society for Economic Measurement, or SEM, is a scientific learned society in the field of economics. It was founded on August 24, 2013 by William A. Barnett in order to "promote research on economic measurement, using advanced tools from economic theory, econometrics, aggregation theory, experimental economics, mathematics, and statistics". The goal of the SEM is to promote in economics--given the constraints of a social science--the implementation of the strict rules of measurement and data gathering standards used in the physical sciences. Carnegie Mellon University, the Center for Financial Stability, and the University of Kansas are sponsors of the society.
- The inaugural conference of the SEM was held at the Harper Center of the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business on August 18–20, 2014. It was co-sponsored by the Becker Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago.
- The 2nd SEM conference was held at the OECD in Paris on July 22-24, 2015.
- The 3rd SEM conference was held in Thessaloniki, Greece on July 6-8, 2016.
- The 4th SEM conference will be held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on July 26-28, 2017.
- The 5th SEM conference will be held at Xiamen University on Xiamen Island in China in June 2108.
