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.
Assessment criteria: The exam wil be made of two separate parts: the first, on microeconometrics, will assign up to 18 marks (out of 30); the second, on macroeconometrics, will assign up to 12 marks.

Students will be able to take a mid-term exam at the end of the microeconometrics part (second half of November)
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.

Review of basic statistical notion. Classical linear regression model: specification, estimation and hypothesis testing. The linear regression model for cross section data. The generalised linear regression model for cross section data. The linear model with endogenous regressors: SIV, GIVE and GMM estimators. The Sargan and Hausman tests. The linear model for panel data(static and dynamic). Discrete choice models. Time series analysis: stazionarity and ergodicity. Univariate linear models for statioanry time series: the ARMA models. Treating non-stationary series: the ARIMA models. The dynamic linear model. The generalized linear model for time series data. Multivariate time series models.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Lectures. Classes.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Students with an inadequate econometric background can read selected chapters from Stock e Watson "Introduction to econometrics"
