Qualification Goals

The module is designed to provide participants with an overview of basic models and methods for analyzing time series data and to enable them to perform such analyses using software such as Stata or Eviews.

The module is divided into three phases of roughly equal length. In the first part

the basic econometric model and its estimation using cross-sectional data are recapitulated. Emphasis is placed on interpretation and critical questioning of the estimation, flexibility in model specification and statistical tests, and endogeneity issues.

The second part covers classical topics of time series analysis in the context of ARMA models, such as residual autocorrelation, stationarity, and unit root tests.

Finally, the third part deals with advanced topics in time series econometrics, such as ARCH-GARCH models, vector autoregressive models, and cointegration theory.
