Objectives

The objective of the class is to provide students with:

  • an understanding the basic concepts of statistics and estimation
  • an understanding of how to design an estimation strategy
  • an understanding of how to efficiently implement it and then reach an interpretation of the results.

This class should be a "hands-on" class on dealing with data. It will be composed of two parts, in the first part of each session, we will go over econometric models; in the second part, we will use software such as STATA, python, etc to analyze related examples.
