About Election 2017 analysis

The remit of the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) is to use rigorous economic analysis to inform the public debate. IFS Election 2017 analysis is being produced with funding from the Nuffield Foundation as part of its work to ensure that public debate in the run-up to the General Election is informed by independent and rigorous evidence. For more information go to the Nuffield Foundation's website.

To help inform public debate around the 2017 UK general election, the IFS will publish a set of briefing notes and observations examining issues around the current policy debate in a number of key economic and social policy areas, alongside analysis of the manifesto proposals put forward by the main parties.

This 2017 general election website contains analysis organised by topic area, comprising both research published during the campaign and existing IFS work relevant to specific debates.

More information about the Institute for Fiscal Studies can be found on our main website.
