__Economics 102: Analysis of Economics
Fall 2023__

[The department also offers a more advanced regression course - Economics 140 (Econometrics) - see bottom of this page.]

Course Goals:

(1) Review univariate statistics and then focus on regression analysis for the relationship between a single variable and one or several explanatory variables.

(2) Apply these methods to key economics data using the econometrics package Stata.

(3) Provide a bridge between introductory statistics and more advanced data analysis courses, e.g. between Statistics 13 and Economics 140.

Economics 1A-B, Statistics 13, 13Y or 32 and Math 16A-B or 17A-B or 21A-B or consent of instructor.

The essential pre-requisites are exposure to introductory lower-division courses in economics and statistics.

**Relationship between Economics 102 and 140 and looking beyond
140:**

Economics 140 is an advanced course that builds upon the
statistical methods presented in Economics 102.

It is required that you take an upper division statistics class or
Economics 102 before 140.

Strong students can skip ECN 102 and take STA 108 followed by ECN
140.

102 is not intended to be taken if Economics 140 has already been
taken.
