Inhalte der LV

The econometrics-teaching program is offered in a cycle over 3 terms. In Econometrics I, the foundations of the subject are dealt with causality, correlation, assumptions of the linear regression model, OLS estimation, functional forms, heteroskedasticity and an introduction R, Stata or E-views.  

In Econometrics II, we will cover the following topics:

· Asymptotic properties of OLS estimator.

· Further issues: Omitted variable bias and proxy variables, endogeneity from non-random sampling and measurement errors, and outliers.

· Instrumental variables and 2SLS: derivation, properties and tests.

· Simultaneous Equations Models.

· Limited Dependent Variable Models: Probit and Logit, Poisson, Tobit, Censored, truncation and incidental truncation models.

Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

This course provides an introduction to the analysis of economic data using econometric methods. After having taken the course, students should be able to understand empirical studies published in scientific journals and carry out econometric work by themselves. The course complements and expands the subjects dealt with in Econometrics I.
