Description:
Study Center Gerzensee Advanced Doctoral Summer Course on Empirical Strategies for Applied Microeconomics
Location:
Gerzensee, Study Center Gerzensee, Switzerland
Subject:
This course covers the core econometric ideas and empirical modeling strategies that I see as most useful for empirical micro. The main theoretical ideas are illustrated with examples. Our text is Mostly Harmless Econometrics: An Empiricist??s Companion by Angrist and Pischke (Princeton University Press, 2009). In a short course, we have to pick and choose our topics, even more than usual. I plan to lecture primarily on the interpretation and use of regression models, matching and the propensity score, instrumental variables and related methods, and statistical inference problems, especially clustering. We may detour to cover areas of special interest to class participants. [gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
