Course Syllabus

Abstract

The course “Advanced Econometrics” focuses on the estimation, inference and identification of regression models. Particular attention is paid to the econometric theory, to the application of econometrics to real-world problems, and to the interpretation of the estimation results. The first part of the course (Fall term) includes linear regressions and models with limited dependent data. Topics on Gauss-Markov theorem, endogeneity, instrumental variables, maximum likelihood estimation will be covered. The second part of the course (Spring term) is focused on issues in system of equations; time series models; panel data models; nonparametric and semiparametric models; Bayesian estimation. The course will include the use of STATA and MS Excel. Use of R and other statistical analysis software is optional.

Assessment Elements

Assessment Elements

  • Partially blocks (final) grade/grade calculation The cumulative score for the Fall term
  • Partially blocks (final) grade/grade calculation The final grade for the Spring term (FG)
    Экзамен проводится в письменной форме. Экзамен проводится на платформе Webinar.ru. К экзамену необходимо подключиться за 5 минут до начала. Компьютер студента должен удовлетворять требованиям: подключение через Google Chrome. Для участия в экзамене студент обязан отправить актуальный e-mail адрес преподавателю за неделю до экзамена. Во время экзамена студентам разрешено пользоваться калькулятором, статистическими программами. Файл с экзаменационными задачами и вставленными в выделенные ячейки ответами и скриншоты с решением должны быть отправлены преподавателю по e-mail не позднее установленного времени. Если возникает проблема отправки или письмо с вложением не было доставлено вовремя, студенту надо будет подтвердить факт своевременной отправки, прислав соответствующие скриншоты. Процедура пересдачи аналогична процедуре сдачи.
  • non-blocking The first intermediate test (Module 1)
    includes tests and problems on the topics 4-6
  • non-blocking The first homework (Module 1)
    the course participants propose a hypothesis and collect their own cross sectional data for a regression model that is going to be analysed further in Module 2.
  • non-blocking The second homework ( Module 2)
    It is based on data collected in Module 1 (and approved by a tutor!). It imposes empirical justification of the stated hypotheses on the base of the material of the topics 4-9. Students are expected to use statistical software STATA or another for data analysis.
  • non-blocking Midterm exam
    it includes tests and problems on the topics 4-11
  • non-blocking Activity on classes
  • non-blocking The second Intermediate Test (Module 3)
    it includes test and problems on the topics 11-15
  • non-blocking The third homework (Module 3)
    The course participants may collect their own data or relay on data given by tutors and use the statistical package STATA (another software is optional) for data analysis. Econometric techniques are based on the topics 10-15).
  • non-blocking The forth homework (Module 4)
    it includes empirical justification of hypotheses relevant to time series analysis and panel data analysis. It is based on the material of the topics 16-19.
  • non-blocking Final exam
    it includes tests and problems on the topics 16-27.
