This is a graduate level course on selected topics in applied econometrics. Following a review of some econometric concepts and tools that are relevant for the so-called “structural” models, the course covers a broad menu of econometric methods that were originally devised for estimation in a specific domain of microeconomics. Emphasis is however placed on tools with broader applicability in current research.

To receive a final evaluation for this course, attendants are expected to submit an econometric exercise (inclusive of original code, and commentary or explanatory short paper) on a topic agreed in advance. The exercise may consist of a paper replication, or of an original analysis with real or simulated data. It is expected that the exercise is in line with a student’s research interests; it would be desirable if it were related to a research project or proposal to be further expanded in the Research Methodology Seminar, in a later course, and possibly in the dissertation stage. The grade will be based on the evaluation of the econometric exercise and, to a lesser extent, of some minor assignments handed during the course.
