Description: 

The course aims at providing the basic concepts and methods for analysing panel data. It begins with introducing different static panel models with fixed and random effects, and discusses the problem of estimation in these models. The course covers tests of hypotheses with panel data as well as techniques for serial correlation, heteroscedasticity, simultaneous equations, dynamic models and models for qualitative dependent variables.
In the tutorials the methods are revisited and applied to empirical data using the software STATA. A deeper insight into advanced methods and additional topics is offered by means of assignments, empirical studies and/or literature reviews.
