This course introduces the use of econometrics to explore and estimate economic relationships using linear regression models. Extensions covering statistical complications such as heteroskedasticity, data issues such as proxy variables, and regression with time series data will also be included. Practical computer applications feature throughout. The course will give students a basic understanding of methods required to model the inter-relationship between variables and prepare them for further studies of econometric methods.
