Description: 

The aim of applied microeconometrics is to analyze individual behavior on the basis of micro data (cross-section and panel data) of individuals, households, and firms. The standard linear regression model is generally not applicable to micro data due to the non-metric measurement and censoring of dependent variables at the individual level, selectivity and incomplete observability of endogenous variables, and the dependence of individual observations over time. The most frequently applied microeconomic methods are surveyed and several applications in empirical microeconomics are presented. Students learn how to apply these methods using real-world micro data and the software package STATA.
