University of Essex
Applied Economics and Data Analysis
This course is ran jointly with our Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER), which specialises in the analysis of household and labour market data; 1 compulsory module (taught by ISER) is panel data methods, which introduces the main techniques used in the analysis of panel data, the specification of models, and the tests of their validity; it includes methods for analysing persistence over time in economic variables, for e.g. the duration of an individual's unemployment spell; another core module, applications of data analysis, focuses on handling different types of datasets, on survey methodology and sampling frames, and on how to deal with problems of response rates and attrition; these modules provide the tools for analysing and implementing some of the models that are presented in theory modules, like microeconomics.
Research council funding and some University of Essex studentships available.
