Objectif du cours

This course introduces the students to advanced econometric methods for the analysis of cross-sectional and panel micro-data. The course explores different techniques that are used in empirical research in economics, as well as policy evaluation tools.

The objective of this course is to first gain a good understanding of the theory behind the models discussed, and then a have broad perspective of how these models are used in practice. 

This course is structured in two blocks:

    • Introduction
    • Pooled models
    • Random effects models
    • Fixed effects models
    • Differences-in-differences Estimator
    • Dynamic models


    • Introduction
    • Maximum Likelihood Estimation: A reminder
    • Binary models
    • Multinomial models
    • Sample selection models


Students should be familiar with the most common statistical methods in econometrics, e.g. linear estimators such as OLS and GLS. 

Lecturer : Lavinia Piemontese and Jean-Paul Renne.

Students will be evaluated on the basis of paper presentations (30%) and a final exam (70%)
