Econometric Analysis - ECMT2160

Year - 2020

A proper understanding of econometric methods and estimation techniques is important, as it allows researchers and practitioners to assess economic theorems, predict macroeconomic tendencies, evaluate government policies, etc. After a brief review of probability and statistics, this unit will focus on the econometric analysis of discrete variables, and the econometric analysis of time series data. The lectures and assessments will be application-oriented. Computer software (e.g., Stata, R, Matlab) will be used throughout the unit.
