Course Description

Introduction to econometrics by merging mathematics, probability, and statistics to answer economic questions using data. The course covers model specification, estimation, and inference, using multiple linear regression and ordinary least squares estimation, while also incorporating nonlinear relationships and discrete variables. Violations of the classical linear model assumptions are examined, including endogeneity, heteroskedasticity, correlated data, non-normality, and nonlinearity in parameters. Emphasis is placed on practical applications of econometric methods to answer questions of cause and effect and forecast macroeconomic variables.
