ECO 350 Econometrics

Prerequisites: ECO 250 and completion or waiver of MAT 135

This course introduces basic mathematical and statistical techniques used by economists to formulate hypotheses, create econometric models, and use data to test hypotheses through econometric estimation and interpretation. The focus will be on the method of Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) estimation and the assumptions behind it as applied to cross sectional data. STATA software will be used for estimation and testing in homework and on an assigned empirical project.
