The series has been discontinued. The activities continued in a new series, INVEST Working Papers.

The series Working Papers on Social and Economic Issues (WPSEI) disseminates academic research by researchers associated with Turku Center for Welfare Research (TCWR) and their collaborators. The purpose is to stimulate discussion and contribute to up-to-date knowledge on social and economic issues. Most of the papers fit under the labels of economics, sociology, demography, and statistics.

The working papers constitute ‘work in progress’. They receive only limited review, and copyright is held by the author(s). When the paper is published as a journal article, the working paper is usually removed from the WPSEI site.

The series was launched 31 August 2015.
