Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This group is for students majoring in Economics. Students majoring in Economic History, please attend Mario Holzner's group.

This is a course in which students will reinforce the tools learned in Introductory Econometrics (BA) by applying them to real world data sets using econometric software. Prior knowledge at the level will be assumed throughout the course. The aim of the course is for students to get hands on experience in analyzing observational data using econometric software and acquire the tools to carry out empirical research projects on their own.

Assessment and permitted materials

Four problem sets (total of 60%), final exam (40%).

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Students should hand in all problem sets and attend the final exam. A minimum of 51% is required to pass the course.

1. Introduction
2. Review of the Linear Regression Model and Inference
4. Multiple Linear Regression Model
5. Endogeneity
