Description:
The course offers a presentation of modern econometric practice. It will cover the theory and application of ordinary least-squares regression (OLS) in the context of cross-sectional, time-series, and panel data, with special emphasis placed on an applied understanding of the potential and limitations of this approach. In addition to OLS, topics will also include fixed effects, difference-indifference, regression discontinuity, and limited dependent variable regression techniques. Students will learn at least one statistical package as Stata, SPSS, or SAS. Emphasis is placed on training creative quantitative researchers.
