The methods covered will allow students to address questions that are relevant from a social, economic, and political perspective: Which are the economic returns of one additional year of schooling? Do democratic institutions promote economic development? Do longer prison sentences deter crimes? What are the effects of immigration? These are just examples of the type of questions that will motivate the use of this family of empirical methods.
