This course involves statistical analysis more generally by its use of economic concepts and theories as a basis for empirical investigation. The approach taken in this course is to emphasise: the application potential of a broad range of econometric techniques; and effective communication of empirical results, rather than the statistical theory upon which econometric methods depend.
