ECON.4200 Advanced Software for Economics

Id: 041592 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3

Description

This course is a "survey" of software used by professional economists and professionals in other disciplines to study empirical phenomena. The course is a "survey" because we will not be going into each software to deeply. Instead, the idea is that students become sufficiently familiar with the software we study so that: they are later comfortable getting into more complex operationalizations themselves and as needed given their professional trajectory; they understand similarities and differences between the software; and they develop a hands-on sense of which software may be best suited for any one application.

Prerequisites

ECON.3030 Microeconomic Theory, and ECON.3040 Macroeconomic Theory.
