This course aims to provide the participants with a profound understanding of econometric methods and tools with a particular focus on applied econometrics. We will follow a two-pillar concept by combining methodological lectures with empirical examples in the computer lab, using the software tool Stata. We will begin by reviewing some basic principles of econometrics and move on to the linear regression methodology, panel data sets and specification issues.
Part 1: Principles of Econometrics
Part 2: Linear Regression
Part 3: Panel Data
