Course Syllabus

Abstract

The course “Applied Paned Data and Spatial Econometrics” is aimed at students with background in statistics and econometrics. The course contains lectures (20 hours) and seminars (24 hours). Lectures cover all the topics, but some technical details are left for self-study of students with the use of the presentations and literature. Seminars involve solving applied tasks with the use of simulated and real data.
Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives

  • deepen their knowledge of econometric analysis of panel data and spatial econometrics.
Expected Learning Outcomes

Expected Learning Outcomes

  • Understand econometric theory underlying fixed effects and random effects models, first difference model, dynamic panel model, Taylor-Hausman model, panel data fixed effects and random effects models, first order spatial lag model and related models, panel data and binary choice spatial models, heteroscedasticity and serial correlation robust estimators.
  • Be able to choose an estimator based on its statistical features, assumptions underlying related theory, and the nature of data at hand.
