Econometrics represents the application of statistical methods to economic models. The same methods are also widely employed in accounting, finance, marketing and management, as well as in other social sciences including political science, history, psychology and sociology.

The second part of the unit will cover contemporary advanced econometric methods, including instrumental variables and panel data models.
