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 first part of the unit will build on the classical regression model and explore consequences of relaxing model assumptions. The second part of the unit will cover contemporary advanced econometric methods, including instrumental variables, time series and panel data models.
