ECON 341 - Econometrics
3 Credit Hours
Econometrics is a set of research tools used to estimate and test economic relationships. The methods taught in this introductory course can also be employed in the business disciplines of accounting, finance, marketing and management and in many social science disciplines. The aim of this course is to provide you with the skills necessary to be able to use data to meaningfully answer economic questions, and to understand both the implications and the limitations of the answers that you find.
The emphasis will be on understanding the tools of econometrics and applying them in practice. To this end, students will define a research question early in the semester, and throughout the semester, will collect and analyze data that can provide insight into this question.
