The course provides students with an understanding of basic methods for statistical analysis of economic data, and with the ability to use these methods to test hypotheses about these data and to estimate parameters of economic models. Students also learn some ways to test if the methods are applicable to a specific data set, and what to do when this is not the case. Focus is on the linear regression model and more developed variants of this model.
