Applied Econometrics - ECON840

The objective of this unit is to enable students with basic statistical knowledge to upgrade their understanding to a practical level where they can apply their knowledge of econometrics to empirical analysis. By successfully completing this unit, students should be able to develop an econometric model suitable for the objective of their analysis, estimate the model using an appropriate estimation method, and draw valid inferences from the estimation results. The unit starts with a brief review of the standard multiple linear regression model and the OLS estimation method. It then relaxes the standard assumptions and investigates alternative estimation methods that are valid under the new circumstances. The final part introduces the interesting discrete-choice models.
