Aims and objectives

This unit aims to give the students a solid foundation in the application of advanced econometrics analysis for conducting empirical research using micro-data. It will focus on the use of non-structural empirical models to identify, estimate, and interpret casual relationships as revealed by observational data. It will illustrate the application of the techniques using worked examples taken from real work micro econometric studies in the recent literature. It will provide students with practical skills to conduct applied econometrics using software such as R and STATA.
