The Social Sciences and Economics Advisory Group (SSEAG) provides expert social sciences and economics advice to FSANZ.
The primary role of the SSEAG is to assist FSANZ in developing and reviewing the social sciences and economics evidence base underpinning its decisions. SSEAG may provide advice on all aspects from project inception to conclusion including appropriate behavioural, social and economic theory and study design, methodological approach, statistical analysis techniques, and the appropriate interpretation of findings.
From time to time, FSANZ invites SSEAG members to form a sub-committee to provide advice, expertise and input to a specific topic(s), issue or project.
SSEAG was established in 2008. Members are appointed for three years and can be reappointed. Meetings are held at least once a year and are chaired by FSANZ.
