Course Syllabus

Abstract

The course is designed for third-year undergraduate students in Economics. The course is of applied nature: The material is presented, whenever possible, in a non-technical way, with examples of empirical studies published in leading international economics and finance journals discussed in class. Lectures are supplemented by computer labs, which ensures that the students get hands-on experience of analyzing real world panel data using Stata 14/15. The topics covered include: pooled OLS model, fixed- and random-effects models, dealing with unbalanced panels, measurement error in panel data, endogenous explanatory variables, the Hausman-Taylor model, and an overview of dynamic panel data models (the Nickel bias, Anderson-Hsiao estimator and Arellano-Bond estimator).
Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives

  • familiarize the students with contemporary methods of panel data analysis, starting with the pooled OLS model and ending with dynamic panel data models

Expected Learning Outcomes

  • Students should be able to effectively apply these methods in own empirical research.
  • Students should be familiar with and be able to use key capabilities of the statistical package “Stata”, including its programming options (the so-called do-files).
