Econometrics is used by economists to either test the validity of economic theory or to estimate a relationship. The emphasis of this course is to showcase how modern microeconometric techniques are developed and applied to empirical economic analyses. Students are expected to be familiar with different econometric models with a sound understanding of the assumptions underlying these models and make inference and interpretation on the parameters of interest. The lecture covers mainly linearly regression models while nonlinear models will be introduced as well if the time permits. This course also provides plenty hands-on experience for students in using econometric software such as STATA, LIMDEP.
