Courses

      • ECON 3318-001 INTRODUCTION TO ECONOMETRICS

        This course is an introduction to regression analysis.Econometrics is a powerful tool that helps answer questions that arise out of economic theory with data.To that end, you will apply statistical techniques to test predictions about the relationships between variables.By the end of the semester you will be able to:

        §Understand the conceptual basis for various econometric techniques

        §Estimate parameters of a model using a statistical package (STATA)

        §Interpret the results of the estimations you perform

        Understanding the conceptual basis for using specific techniques and interpreting the results is considered more important than the ability to prove mathematical results.This is reflected in the coursework.
