Topics include simple linear regression, multiple linear regression, hypothesis testing, functional forms, dummy variable regressions, nonspherical disturbances, instrumental variables, and basic time series analysis. The course emphasizes applications. After the introduction of the basic theories, students will learn how to perform analysis using statistical software.
