The emphasis of the course is twofold: (i) to extend regression models in the context of cross-section and panel data analysis, (ii) to focus on situations where liner regression models are not appropriate and to study alternative methods. The course prepares you to discuss the estimation of causal parameters and program evaluation and to consider parameter heterogeneity in the second part of the sequence. Examples of applied work will be used throughout the course.
