Introduction to Econometrics

What economic, social and political questions can we answer using data? What can we know using simple trends and summary statistics? It turns out, quite a lot!

In this course, you will learn the different methods used in economics to work with data, test economic theories, evaluate government policies and analyse economic systems. You will work with different econometric tools available to analyse data and learn how to use the appropriate methods to answer economic questions using data. You will build on the statistical knowledge you have gained in the course on Quantitative Methods. You will learn how to conduct a basic empirical analysis of an economic question using appropriate techniques for establishing causal relationships and understand and critique empirical economic research of an intermediate level.
