In this unit students will be presented with a research question in economics based on a real-world problem or issue. Initially, the research problem will be presented by the instructor or a guest lecturer. Supporting lectures will be delivered on appropriate theoretical concepts and quantitative methods required to conduct the research. Students will interact with the instructor to define the detail of the research problem, the approach for analysis and feedback on their work. Following this, students will construct a detailed literature review, collect and analyse data, and present the research results in written form.
