This course provides an introduction to basic econometric methods. These are the tools of data analysis that economists and other social scientists use to estimate the size of economic and social relationships, and to test hypotheses about them, using real-world data. The goal of this course is to equip students with the facts, intuition and skills necessary to critically read econometric research produced by others and to conduct independent econometric research. Coursework includes problem sets, midterm and final examinations. Most of the problem sets will require students to use the statistical software package, STATA.
