Empirical analysis with
Econometrics is a valuable tool for policymakers, businesses, and researchers in understanding the complexities of economic data. This module simplifies econometric modeling using MS Excel, SPSS, STATA and Python.
About this module
This module explores the application of econometrics using statistical applications MS Excel, SPSS, STATA and Python. It teaches how to develop statistical models to test economic theories, estimate the impact of economic policies, and make forecasts. You will get familiarised with collecting microeconomic/ macroeconomic/ financial data, selecting appropriate statistical models, estimating the parameters of the models, and testing hypotheses.
