This course sets out to introduce students to the main econometrical methods used for that purpose (linear regression, instrumental variables, simultaneous equations, panel data, dichotomous variables and audits and evaluation methods). Concrete examples (estimates of production functions, wage equations, money demand and assessment of employment policies) feature prominently on the course.
Economics is a discipline that, without being an experimental science, has been built up on observation of the facts and tests the accuracy of its theoretical concepts against empirical facts. Indeed, the ability to process large data sets into meaningful statistics is a much sought-after skill in the professions with a significant economic, para-economic or financial component.
