Regression analysis is the main empirical method, and basic statistical and probability theory is included. Students gain hands-on computer experience with an econometric software package. “
The Work I Did
In this class I learned the methods and a statistical software used by economists for economic analysis. In this class I applied statistical and calculus concepts to learn regression analysis. In this class there was one midterm and final. Through the problem sets and exams I demonstrated an ability to apply the econometric principles taught in class. Specifically, I showed the ability to do the econometric proof done by Professor Dobkins, calculate the numbers desired, and interpret the number desired.
Here are examples of the work I did in class:
