Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course covers empirical strategies for applied research. Topics include regression and matching, 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.

Assessment and permitted materials

Final exam: 33%. Project 33%. Presentation in class 33%. Participation in class 1%.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Assessment is based on an open-book exam, a take home simulation exercise and a presentation of a paper in class.

Examination topics

All the material covered in class will be relevant for the exams.
