This is the second half of a year-long graduate field course in development economics. The first half of this course will be split into two topic areas: 1) firm productivity and barriers to firm growth in low-income contexts; and 2) health care economics in low-income settings. The second half will focus on experimental methods, covering topics such as randomization design, power, estimation and inference, multiple hypothesis adjustments, heterogeneous treatment effects, and the practicalities of how field experiments actually happen. Students will complete several problem sets, as well as write a grant proposal and pre-analysis plan for a field experiment of their own design.
