Course Description

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the study of econometrics, which deals with the application of statistical methods to test economic theory. Econometrics uses observational data to estimate economic relationships, test hypotheses about economic behaviour, and predict future values of economic variables. Software applications are introduced during the course in order to provide hands-on experience with data collection, analysis and interpretation.
