The goal of this course is to link econometric methods for estimation of causal effects to data. We will cover a number of theoretical topics that are important in applied research in labor economics, health economics, industrial organization and related fields.
The course will be organized in lectures to provide the economic framework and the econometric issues for each topic. The lectures will be complemented with problem sets, that include both theoretical and empirical exercises. Students ought to handle the Stata program on their own and read related papers.
