“All theory is gray, my friend. But forever green is the tree of life.” ---Johann Wolfgang von Goethe: Faust: Part I

Description

This is an entry-level Ph.D. econometrics course. Under the asymptotic framework, it covers estimation and inference of the regression models and the instrumental variable models. It focuses on theory --- applying statistical theory to econometric models. It is NOT about how to apply econometric methods to empirical data.

Textbooks

The lectures are based primarily on Bruce Hansen's textbooks:

Both are downloadable for free.

Lecture Notes

My lecture notes and code demonstrations can be found at

Caveat: This is an ongoing writing project. The text is incomplete, and may contain errors. Use them at your own risk!

I encourage anyone, in particular students taking my class, to contribute or improve the notes. Send me pull requests.

Lecture Hours

Friday 8:30—11:15 am.

The course will be taught online until further notice.

Dates: September 11, 18, 25; October 9, 16, 23, 30; November 6, 13, 20, 27; Dec 4 (12 lectures)

Assessment

  • Attendance (15%): open webcam in each class
  • Assignment (35%): hand in one week after assignment
  • Final (50%): open-book, but no electric devices are allowed

Prerequisites

Undergraduate level multivariate calculus (two semesters), linear algebra (one semester), and probability and statistics (one semester). Undergraduate econometrics is a plus, though not necessary.
