Econometrics is a broad category of data analysis that focuses on trying to use data to understand how the world works, even in cases where you can’t run an experiment. This course offers a survey of econometrics. It begins with a brief review of regression, but mostly focuses on research design in econometrics and methods commonly used to estimate causal effects, including fixed effects, difference-in-differences, instrumental variables, and regression discontinuity. The seminar puts an emphasis on practical understanding and use of these concepts, as opposed to statistical proofs.

Starting May 10, we are offering this seminar as a 4-day synchronous*, livestream workshop held via the free video-conferencing software Zoom. Each day will consist of two lecture sessions which include hands-on exercises, separated by a 1-hour break. Participants are encouraged to join the lecture live, but will have the opportunity to view the recorded session later in the day if they are unable to attend at the scheduled time.

*We understand that scheduling is difficult during this unpredictable time. If you prefer, you may take all or part of the course asynchronously. The video recordings will be made available within 24 hours of each session and will be accessible for four weeks after the seminar, meaning that you will get all of the class content and discussions even if you cannot participate synchronously.

Closed captioning is available for all live and recorded sessions.
