Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this subject, students should be able to:
  1. Choose the appropriate econometric model to estimate in terms of: a.The theoretical foundations of the model; b.The empirical questions to be addressed, and; c.The nature of the data used to estimate the model
  2. Identify variations on the classical linear model when using data which is both cross sectional and time series.
  3. Explain issues of modelling with endogenous regressors.
  4. Estimate and interpret and test models with limited dependent variables.
  5. Estimate and interpret linear econometric models using modern time series methods.
  6. Estimate models with panel data and show how they are related to modern policy evaluation.
  7. Have developed proficiency in the use of STATA for econometric modelling.
