In this course, we go over an introduction to research methods in economics, with a focus on development economics. We hope this will help you build core competencies in research. It will cover research ethics, research design, qualitative research methods and quantitative research methods. Qualitative research methods will include interview, focus group discussion and observation techniques. Quantitative methods will include sampling, survey design and statistical estimation techniques. A basic undergraduate econometrics course is a prerequisite for this course.
