This course complements “Empirical Methods 1”. The goal of this follow-up class is for students to learn how to work with data and analyse it against the backdrop of a given research question. After a brief recap on the contents of “Empirical Methods 1”, we will delve into data analysis both in an applied and theoretical manner. Our theory sessions will focus on descriptive and inference statistics for cross-sectional data with an application to business problems. Our applied sessions will introduce data coding and data analysis using statistical programming software.
