    Effectively Using Data and Econometrics in Consumer Protection Matters

    12 PM EST

    This lunch-hour program will explore how data and econometric analyses are used in consumer protection investigations and litigations involving government enforcers, including the FTC and state AGs, and private parties. As is reflected in the recent FTC v. Amazon enforcement action, data is increasingly playing a role in evaluating consumer deception and harm. The panel will also discuss the use of data to evaluate refund rates, complaints rates, FCRA compliance, and advertising claim substantiation, among other topics.
