Microeconometrics Using Stata
This course provides a review and practical guide to a number of microeconometric models and estimators. We focus on panel and count data models and also examine a broad class of models of discrete choice behaviour. The course emphasise two estimators, the instrumental variable estimator, and the Generalised Method of Moments. The objective of the course is to provide a solid introduction to each of the topics, reviewing both the theoretical econometrics and the empirical literature. Each topic discussed is then illustrated with real data examples using Stata. Some of the examples and applications discussed include: the demand for differentiated products in the ready-to-eat cereal industry, flexible substitution patterns in the new car market, foreclosure in subprime mortgages, the number of patents held by firms, the number of children born to a woman.
