Description

This course teaches advanced skills in practical econometrics. Coverage will include the following topics: OLS, FGLS, robust standard errors, panel data, Stata programming, Monte Carlo experiments, time series, nonstationarity, and error correction models. While the course will present some theory, the emphasis in this class is on doing. A distinctive feature is that we will illustrate key concepts using computer simulations so that students can "see" the practical consequences of the issues they are studying.
