Basic Econometrics

Overview

This course is framed in such a manner that the student gets familiar with a basic course content which includes first of all some basic requirements for statistical requisites such as sampling methods, large and small sample tests, estimation theory, testing of hypothesis etc. Next the focus is on basics with linear regression and prediction problems. Multiple regression is studied in sufficient details. The approaches when the basic assumptions are violated one by one are studied by Multicollinearity, Heteroscadasticity, auto correlation phenomena. Problems with specifications errors, lagged variables model, simultaneous equations system model with identification problem are discussed. Time series analysis and models are introduced. Some detailed study about dummy variables is presented Panel data analysis is also presented for application purpose.
