This course focuses on the sensible application of econometric methods to empirical problems in economics and public policy analysis. It provides background on issues that arise when analyzing non-experimental social science data and a guide for tools that are useful for empirical research. By the end of the course, students will have an understanding of the types of research designs that can lead to convincing analysis and be comfortable working with large scale data sets. This course is cross-listed with Econ C 142 and Public Policy C 142.
Note: This is an advanced methods course, and NOT a replacement for PS3.
