Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim of this course is to help you to understand modern applied econometric methods and to foster the skills needed to plan and execute your own empirical projects. Topics include randomized trials, regression, differences-in-differences, instrumental variables and regression-discontinuity designs. This is an “applied-empirical” course, meaning that priority will be given to concrete applications rather than to formal derivation of the econometrics methods used in the applications.
