Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Summary: “This course emphasizes statistical methods for analyzing data used by social scientists. Topics include simple and multiple regression analyses and the various methods of detecting and correcting data problems.”
Goal: Upon completion of the course, students will be able to undertake regression analysis and inference on a variety of hypotheses involving cross-sectional and time series data.
This course introduces students to regression tools for analyzing data in economics, finance and related disciplines. Extensions include regression with discrete random variables, instrumental variables regression, quasi-experiments, and regression with time series data. The objective of the course is for the student to learn how to conduct – and how to critique – empirical studies in economics, finance and related fields. Accordingly, the emphasis of the course is on empirical applications. The mathematics of econometrics will be introduced only as needed and will not be a central focus.
