ECON 365 Econometric Analysis

Econometric analysis is a blend of mathematics, statistics, and economic theory. It focuses on the development of multiple regression models useful for testing economic relationships and making business forecasts. The multiple regression model and problems encountered in its application are developed in lecture and individual applied research papers. Topics include serial correlation, heteroscedasticity, simultaneous equations, limited dependent variable models. Special attention is given to the matrix algebra determination of estimators. Students who receive credit for 365 may not receive credit for ECON 253. Similarly, students who receive credit for ECON 253 may not receive credit for 365.
