Econometrics III

2019-2020

Course Objective

Obtaining basic understanding of multivariate dynamic linear modeling
and time series analysis and panel data. Understanding the introductory
theory and practice of econometric analysis of stationary and
non-stationary multivariate stochastic processes and panel data.

Course Content

Econometrics III provides an introduction to multivariate dynamic models
and time-series analysis. The course covers both theoretical and
practical aspects of time-series econometrics including analysis of
multivariate stationary and non-stationary processes, vector
autoregressive (VAR) models, vector error correction models (VECMs), and
cointegration tests. The course also introduces panel data models,
methods and techniques.
