ECMT3110 - Econometric Models and Methods

Semester 1, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Laurent Pauwels

Description

This unit extends methods of estimation and testing developed in association with regression analysis to cover econometric models involving special aspects of behaviour and of data. In particular, motivating examples are drawn from dynamic models, panel data and simultaneous equation models. In order to provide the statistical tools to be able to compare alternative methods of estimation and testing, both small sample and asymptotic properties are developed and discussed.
