(Online) PKU - Applied Econometrics
13 June 2020 – 10 July 2020
Hosted by Peking University
This course provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the econometric modeling tools that are frequently used in empirical economic research. The topics include linear and non-linear regressions, least squares and maximum likelihood estimation, time series and panel data models, instrumental variable estimation and regression equation systems, models of limited dependent variables, research design and program evaluation methods, etc. The computer programming techniques to implement these models will be taught using the STATA software. To exemplify the above estimation methods in real research settings, a number of published papers are selected into the reading list and will be discussed in the class. In addition, you will get hands-on experience in conducting empirical research by writing and presenting an academic term paper.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the course will be offered online for 2020. The online teaching and seminar will be achieved via Canvas and Zoom.
