Econometric theory provides techniques to quantify the strength and form of relationships between variables. Econometric methods are concerned with the appropriate use of these techniques in practical applications in economics. In this unit general principles for undertaking applied work are discussed and necessary research skills developed. In particular, the links between econometric models and the underlying substantive knowledge or theory for the application are stressed. Topics may include, panel data, partial identification, weak instruments, nonparametric regression and density estimation, and discrete choice models. Research papers involving empirical research are studied.
