course

The objective of this course is to provide students who have taken their required classes in theoretical econometrics hands-on experience of empirical research. Econometrics II is for 1st year MIS students. The course will cover specific topics (identification, instrumental variables, duration models, binary choice and multi-response models, sample selection models, count models, panel data, parameter heterogeneity, and univariate and multivariate time series analysis). Rather than proving theorems, the course will focus on the intuition and practical applications of the various econometric techniques. Homework assignments will require the use of Stata.
