14.661 Labor Economics I (MIT) 14.661 Labor Economics I (MIT)

Description

Neoclassical analysis of the labor market and its institutions. A systematic development of the theory of labor supply, labor demand, and human capital. Topics discussed also include wage and employment determination, turnover, search, immigration, unemployment, equalizing differences, and institutions in the labor market. There is particular emphasis on the interaction of theoretical and empirical modeling and the development of independent research interests.

14.384 Time Series Analysis (MIT) 14.384 Time Series Analysis (MIT)

Description

The course provides a survey of the theory and application of time series methods in econometrics. Topics covered will include univariate stationary and non-stationary models, vector autoregressions, frequency domain methods, models for estimation and inference in persistent time series, and structural breaks. We will cover different methods of estimation and inferences of modern dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models (DSGE): simulated method of moments, maximum likelihood and Bayesian approach. The empirical applications in the course will be drawn primarily from macroeconomics. The course provides a survey of the theory and application of time series methods in econometrics.

Econometrics

Description

This course is designed to provide the student with a simple and straightforward introduction to econometrics. Econometrics is a set of research tools employed in the business disciplines of accounting, finance, marketing, and management. It is also used by social scientists, specifically researchers in history, political science, and sociology, and it even plays an important role in such diverse fields as forestry and agricultural economics. Studying econometrics will help the student transition from being a student of economics to a practicing economist. By taking this course, the student will gain an overview of what econometrics is about and develop some “intuition” about how things work. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overvie

14.30 Introduction to Statistical Method in Economics (MIT)

Description

This course will provide a solid foundation in probability and statistics for economists and other social scientists. We will emphasize topics needed in the further study of econometrics and provide basic preparation for 14.32. No prior preparation in probability and statistics is required, but familiarity with basic algebra and calculus is assumed.

Subjects

Economics | statistics | methods | probability | economists | social scientists | econometrics | algebra | calculus

14.386 New Econometric Methods (MIT)

Description

This course focuses on recent developments in econometrics, especially structural estimation. The topics include nonseparable models, models of imperfect competition, auction models, duration models, and nonlinear panel data. Results are illustrated with economic applications.

14.381 Statistical Method in Economics (MIT)

Description

?This course is divided into two sections, Part I and Part II.  Part I provides an introduction to statistical theory and can be found by visiting 14.381 Fall 2013. Part II, found here, prepares students for the remainder of the econometrics sequence. The emphasis of the course is to understand the basic principles of statistical theory. A brief review of probability will be given; however, this material is assumed knowledge. The course also covers basic regression analysis. Topics covered include probability, random samples, asymptotic methods, point estimation, evaluation of estimators, Cramer-Rao theorem, hypothesis tests, Neyman Pearson lemma, Likelihood Ratio test, interval estimation, best linear predictor, best linear approximation, conditional expectation function, buil
