Regression analysis is the basic statistical technique
economists use to examine the empirical evidence for relationships posited by
economic theory. We will begin with the classical regression model. Then we
will question the assumptions underlying the model (i.e. we will become more
realistic about what information a researcher is likely to have) and explore
additional techniques that can be used when those assumptions are violated. The
goal of the course is to introduce you to both the theory and practice of
regression: how to design and estimate a regression model with actual data, how
to interpret regression results, and critically analyze the validity of the
techniques that you and other researchers use.
