Prerequisites: As emphasis will be given to methods for empirical research in applied economics, students are required to have already developed good working knowledge of general concepts in statistics and econometrics.
Target skills and knowledge: Be able to critically appraise the usefulness and appropriateness of a variety of econometric procedures.

Understand how econometric methods can be used for the analysis of cross section and panel data.

Understand how econometric methods can be used for the analysis of time series data.
Examination methods: Written exam with questions on theory and exercises requiring the analysis of real data.
Course unit contents: This course introduces students to tools widely used in modern econometrics, discussing the properties of a variety of methods for the analysis of cross section, time series and panel data. Methods and applications will be soundly integrated, and classes in the computer lab will help students develop a taste for the quantitative approach to economic theory. Contents will be articulated as follows:

Causal relationships and ceteris paribus analysis is economics. When econometrics kicks in: cross section, time series and panel data. Linear models: general overview and definitions. Linear models with cross section data: identification. Linear models with cross section data: estimation. Linear models with time series data: identification. Linear models with time series data: estimation. Linear panel data models (static and dynamic.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Lectures.
