Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course focuses on those econometric methods that are used in the analysis of individual economic data. The following five topics are targeted in particular:

1. Basics
2. Endogenous regressors
3. Maximum likelihood
4. Limited dependent variables
5. Panel data

Assessment and permitted materials

Assessment is based on two written tests and on a small independent empirical econometric project. Each of the tests carries a weight of 35 % for the final grade, while the project carries 30 %. A positive grade requires 50 % of the maximum achievable score and attendance at the midterm test.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Participants are familiar with the standard methods of econometrics, in particular with maximum-likelihood estimation, instrumental variables, generalized method of moments, panel data, models with discrete variables and selection models.

Examination topics

Lecturing, discussion, empirical project.
