First of all, students get to know and learn about different data sources to summarise data in a number of descriptive statistics. Second, they learn how to work with univariate and multivariate linear regression models. We also pay attention to situations when the classical assumptions of the linear regression model do not hold: think about problems such as multicollinearity, omitted variable bias, heteroskedasticity and endogeneiy.
Third, you will learn to work with Probit and Logit models. (in case the outcome variable is binary) and you get to know the basics of time series and panel data models. Finally, students will apply the mentioned techniques on empirical data using Stata.
