This course introduces students with the basics of econometric and data analysis, with special emphasis on causal inference and modern applied micro-econometric methods. The aim of the course is to help students to build and develop skills needed to understand empirical methods that are used in modern applied economic research and to execute their own econometric projects.

The course focuses on the following topics and methods: randomized trials, regression, instrumental variables, regression-discontinuity designs, and differences-in-differences. We also explore a number of applications and discuss briefly a number of other modern micro-econometric approaches. The course also introduces students with econometric and statistical software, Stata in particular, and how it can be used in econometric and data analysis.

After completing the course, you will be able to:

  • identify and explain key concepts and methods used in modern applied micro-econometric research
  • explain what causality means and why and when micro-econometric methods work
