Qualification Goals

The module is designed to give participants an overview of basic models and methods for analyzing microeconometric data and to enable them to perform such analyses using software such as STATA. Given the abundance of methods, assessing which model or method is adequate for a specific data set and what their capabilities, but also limitations, are represents a key learning objective.

In the first part of the course, basic properties of linear regression in cross-sectional data are recapitulated, focusing on the endogeneity problem. In this part, the theory of maximum likelihood estimation is also discussed. The second part deals with regressions of cross-sectional data under restrictions on the explained variable, which includes binary regression (logit/probit) as well as Tobit regression and the Heckman method in the presence of sample selection bias.

The third part deals with the estimation of models for panel data. In particular, fixed- and random-effects models and their estimation are covered. The fourth part discusses quantile regression and Cox proportional hazard regression of survival analysis.
