Dear students,

The slides for Chapter 9, where we introduce panel data analysis and the first differences method, are now available.


New lecture slides and other material

5 Dezembro 2021, 21:14 Hugo Castro Silva

Dear students,

I have updated the slides for Ch. 6 (Causality) with minor, but important, changes. Please download the new version.

I have also uploaded the slides for the next lecture, on using pooled cross sectional data for policy analysis and evaluation. Please bring the slides with new for our next class.

Additionally, I have uploaded slides on binary dependent variable models. While we won't cover this subject in the lectures, binary dependent variable models are the focus of this week's lab. I highly recommend that you go through these slides before the lab session, as we won't have time to cover this in the lectures.

Note that this subject is just as important as the subjects covered in the lectures, but we are relying (and testing) your autonomy to learn.
