Welcome to ÊSTIMATE
Econometrics has long been a strength of the Economics Department at Michigan State University. ÊSTIMATE -- Early Summer Tutorial In Modern Applied Tools of Econometrics -- gives empirical practitioners, academic researchers, industry/government researchers/analysts, and graduate students, access to econometrics training usually reserved for students formally enrolled in PhD programs at MSU. ÊSTIMATE is an intensive weekend workshop taught by world class econometricians. ÊSTIMATE’s focus is modern econometric tools as used in practice. Participants learn methods and techniques to use immediately in their empirical research. ÊSTIMATE’s goal is to broaden and improve the practice of econometric methods throughout empirical research and data analysis in academics, industry and government.
Topics Covered in ÊSTIMATE
The 2013 presentations focus on understanding when various models and estimation methods are appropriate as well as how to conduct proper inference in a variety of settings. Methods are illustrated with empirical examples using the econometrics software package Stata. Participants receive access to course/workshop materials including presentation slides, notes, data sets, and Stata .do files. Topics will include:
- Linear Panel Data Models with Microeconomic Data
- Introduction to Regression with Time Series Data
- Linear Panel Data Models with Many Time Periods
- Nonlinear Panel Data Models with Microeconomic Data
- Control Function Methods for Handling Endogenous Explanatory Variables
It will be assumed that participants in ÊSTIMATE have an econometrics background comparable to a first-year PhD econometrics sequence.
