UCSC Class Description
“Applies the techniques of econometrics and experimental economics to the understanding of economics. A “hands-on” course where real economic data is used in an interactive way so that students develop the art of empirical analysis.”
The Work I Did
In this class I used the econometrics I learned prior to writing rudimentary papers of economic analysis. Using the statistical program R, I used the over 5000 line national data sets, I analyzed the data and generated graphs to visualize the data. Once done, I wrote two economic statistical inference papers. The first paper I wrote about looked to see if a precise estimate was calculated from two different types of data sets. The second paper I wrote used two different data sets to compare if, what type of correlation, and the effect of the correlation.
