Seminar in Economic Analysis (ECON 590): Spring 2023

This course introduces students to recent empirical literature from public, labor, and urban economics. We will discuss how applied economists examine real-world topics including crime, housing, and immigration. In doing so, we will focus on highlighting the kinds of data and statistical techniques empirical economists use in applied work.

As part of this course, students will use the R statistical programming language. The course will emphasize developing the data cleaning and management skills required to conduct independent research as well as pursue jobs in data analysis and related fields. In addition, the course will cover using R for statistical and regression analysis as well as GIS mapping.
