#ElectionEconomics: The research evidence on key issues for voters in the 2015 UK General Election is the final report of CEP's #ElectionEconomics series.

The report covers all the election briefings, discussing the research evidence on 15 of the UK's key policy battlegrounds: immigration, austerity, real wages and living standards, productivity and business, Europe, the NHS, schools, tuition fees, gender gaps, urban and regional policy, top tax rates, inequality, housing and planning, crime, climate change and energy.

These briefings are provided by some of our expert researchers and draw on some of our past and current research.
