NEW: Economics 190: Research with Economics Data Fall 2023

The goal of this new course is for students to write a research paper based on analysis of economics data.

As background the class will go through several published papers and several econometrics methods.

The key component of this class is the research paper which will be a group project (2-4 students per paper depending on class size).
Additionally there will be a final examination.

Assesment will be Attendance (5%), Assignments (30%), Midterm Exam (15%), Project interim (10%), Project Presentation (10%), Project final (30%).

Teaching will use Stata. Projects can use Stata, R or Python.


The course is intended for Economics majors, and first pass is restricted to Economics majors.
The key requirement is Economics 102 with a grade of B- or better, or (better still) Economics 140 with a grade of B- or better.
Enrollment is capped at 30 students.
Should there still be room after first pass I will consider Students who have taken STA 108 with a grade of B- or better or ARE 106 with a grade of B- or better, provided they have also taken basic courses in ECN or ARE.
