Mastering Econometrics

via Marginal Revolution University


If you're looking to untangle cause and effect in a complex world, then econometrics is what you seek. 

Join MIT professor Josh Angrist and learn to master the econometrics "Furious Five": random assignment, regression, instrumental variables, regression discontinuity designs, and differences-in-differences methods.

Think econometrics is boring? So it was once, but will be no more! Skipping theoretical tedium, we use real empirical questions to bring the numbers to life. Does a private university education pay off with higher earnings? Do lower drinking ages cost lives? Econometrics uncovers the answers.
