E673 Topics in Microeconometrics
The purpose of this course is to cover important topics and techniques
that have been developed and applied in microeconometrics. While
applications of these models are often found in microeconomic fields,
they are also quite useful in other economic fields and other social
sciences. Specifically, we will mainly focus on the following two
topics: panel data and qualitative variables and limited dependent
variables. These two type models have shown wide applicability in
empirical work and have been areas of great interest in econometrics
in the last decades. In addition to the emphasis on the statistical
inference of these models, we will also pay attention to the
application of these models in industrial organization, labor, health,
and elsewhere in the social sciences. It is hoped that throughout the
course, students will not only have a thorough knowledge on the
up-to-date development in these models, but also develop some
important skills in analyzing these models and applying them to the
empirical work.
