Quantitative Economics 2

Defever, F. (Fabrice)

The module introduces those statistical methods and concepts most applicable in economics. There are no pre-requisites: In particular, no previous knowledge of statistics will be assumed. The analysis of economic data necessarily proceeds in an environment where there is uncertainty about the processes that generated the data. Statistical methods provide a framework for understanding and characterising this uncertainty. These concepts are most conveniently introduced through the analysis of single-variable problems. However, economists are most often concerned about relationships among variables. The module builds towards the study of regression analysis, which is often applied by economists in studying such relationships.
