Regression Analysis I
Full course description
This course aims to introduce students to the analytical tool of regression analysis. In this first of two parts, students will be introduced to ordinary least-squares regression with one or more independent variables, including special types of variables such as dummies and interaction terms. Students will explore real-world data to analyse policy-relevant questions and form conclusions on the basis of the evidence they uncover.
The course aims to introduce students to the working of the basic regression analysis model, and teach students how to use this for public policy analysis using real-world data.
