Regression analysis is an essential part of the toolkit of empirical economists. The aim of this intensive course is to provide an introduction to the linear regression model that is used in Econometrics. The course will refresh the principles of statistics, such as basic probability, statistical estimators, and statistical hypothesis testing. Next, it considers the multivariate linear regression model on many topics such as the Ordinary Least Squares estimator, the interpretation of the regression parameters, the standard error of the OLS-estimator, unbiased estimators, t-test and F-test, perfect multicollinearity, consequences of omitted variables, consequences of irrelevant variables, interaction effects, dummy variables, heteroskedasticity, time-series regression models, exogeneity and autocorrelation. The participants will gain further insight into these topics by Stata applications on data sets. On the final day of the course the participants will be tested on their knowledge.
