The goal of this course is to provide students with the necessary tools to address issues that involve the empirical analysis of observational (i.e. non-experimental) data. The focus of the course is on estimating treatment effects and we will review several different approaches that can be helpful in doing so. Theory will be presented and, whenever possible, applied examples will also be presented.
At the end of this course, students will be able to use these tools to:
- Choose the right research question
- Use appropriate data and statistical methods to address the question
- Interpret results
- Class Participation
