Exercise Sessions:


Additional Tutorials:



Knowledge of calculus, linear algebra, statistics and probability theory as taught in the first three semesters of the bachelor program in economics.

Qualification Target

The course enables students to develop a deep understanding of linear regression methods and involves an intuitive and applied presentation of applied econometrics with reference to examples used in the Economics literature. Additionally, analysis of cross-sectional data and time series data at the graduate level will be presented.

Course Description

The course provides an up-to-date introduction into econometrics at the level of Wooldridge's textbook on “Introductory Econometrics – A Modern Approach”. The course will review basic concepts from calculus, statistics and probability theory, and matrix algebra. Then, the course will give an introduction into regression analysis based on cross sectional data, time series data, and panel data. The course will also cover selected topics in time series analysis and microeconometrics.

In the accompanying exercise sessions, the participants will learn to implement the estimation methods using the econometric package TSP for some real world economic problems. Some applications will be using the econometric package STATA.

Homeworks: There will be two homeworks related to the topics covered in the course. The submission of the homeworks is not part of the final grade. It is voluntary, but highly recommended! The homeworks might be submitted as a team work of four students at most. Please submit “handwritten” solutions (except for the TSP/Stata output). In particular, do not submit copies!

Further Information

The basic estimation techniques will be implemented in the PC Pool using the econometric package TSP. We have a site license for TSP (both for Windows and MAC PCs) which can be used by students. TSP International (see www.tspintl.com) provides numerous examples for using the program for advanced estimation problems.
