The aim of this course is to analyse the main challenges faced by economists and social scientists in answering empirical questions using micro‐data. The main emphasis will be on learning how to establish causal relationships between different variables and how to use this evidence to inform policy makers' decisions.
Expected learning outcomes
Students will learn how to handle real‐world data, how identify causal effects using micro-data, how to use econometric software (Stata) to generate estimates and how to link econometric theory with data work and produce an insightful and coherent empirical analysis.
