Bernhard Binder-Hammer focuses on the relationship between demography and economics, especially on the integration of demographic information in economic data. His work at the WIC concentrates on the continued development of National Transfer Accounts, an accounting system that combines National Accounts with demographic characteristics, such as age and gender. A central question addressed with these data is how economic developments and economic crises affect the economic situation of distinct generations.
