ECON 381 - Introduction to Econometrics

Econometrics is the theory and practice of analyzing economic data. We investigate and implement methods economists use to test theories, evaluate and establish causal inference, and conduct economic forecasts. Students learn to design, conduct, and evaluate empirical work in economics and other social sciences. We apply acquired skills through a final research project that integrates secondary research, economic theory, and econometric analysis. We take a “hands on” approach by practicing each week’s material in the Economics Department’s computer lab. This course counts as a Group E elective. Prerequisite(s):  ECON 361  and STAT 155 .  C- or higher required for all prerequisites. Every semester. (4 Credits)
