Primary Instructor:

This course is designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of econometric analysis. To this end, the primary focus is on simple and multiple linear regressions under the classical assumptions. Extensions include testing hypotheses for single and multiple linear restrictions; regression with binary variables, basic regression with time series data, and other deviations from the classical assumptions. More advanced topics can include instrumental variable estimation,the difference-in-differences estimator, and basic panel data analysis.

The course will put a heavy emphasis on empirical applications; econometric theory will be discussed where necessary but will not be the central focus.

Course Requirements:

No data submitted

Intended Audience:

Students with a strong mathematical background seeking a more advanced treatment of the material may wish to consider ECON 452 instead. The knowledge attained in the course will be valuable for students who consider a career in economics, business, marketing, finance, and other related fields.
