Econometrics (I)

This is an advanced course intended to serve as a first econometrics course for economics graduate students. Econometrics (I) is half of a two semester sequence which concludes in the second semester with Econometrics (II). Econometrics (I) covers regression analysis. Econometrics (I) does not attempt to survey econometrics and students who take Econometrics (I) should under normal circumstances take Econometrics (II) as well. The course is largely theoretical, but yet students will learn how to make use of these tools to conduct basic empirical study. Thus, the class will be proceeded in two ways: lectures and computer hands-on (take place at Computer and Network center). We will use EViews with data examples for data analysis and modeling.
