applied-metrics

This is a PhD level course in Applied Econometrics at NYU Stern.

The course is much more applied than my micro-metrics course (http://www.github.com/chrisconlon/micro-metrics)

In addition to traditional econometric approaches, this course draws connections to recent literature on machine learning.

The following textbooks may be useful for additional information:

These are more advanced treatments:

The rough outline of the course is as follows:

  1. Introductory Time Series
  2. Panel Data I: Fixed Effects, Random Effects, Clustering
  3. Panel Data II: Dynamic Panel Data, Causal FE, Empirical Bayes
  4. Nonlinear Estimation: GMM and MLE
  5. Discrete Choice and Multinomial Choice
  6. Bayesian Methods and MCMC
  7. Treatment Effects and Potential Outcomes (Part I): Matching, Propensity Scores, LATE
  8. Treatment Effects and Potential Outcomes (Part II): Difference in Difference, RDD, etc.
  9. Nonparametric Methods: Kernels, KNN, Bootstrap
  10. Nonparametric Methods: Kernels, KNN, Bootstrap
  11. Machine Learning: Regulaarization, Model Selection, Data Reduction (Ridge, LASSO, PCA)
  12. Additional Topics Based on Interest

My Students

Over the course of the semester I expect each of my students to find at least two typos or other errors and fix them via a pull request.
