We explore several topics in public economics, in particular theoretical and empirical work in education and health economics.
This course is designed to give Economics Honours Students a deeper understanding of modern econometrics tools.
A primary focus of the course is on providing extended practical experience in estimating econometric models using real-world data sources.
We study welfare economics, the provision of public goods, and externalities. We will also study theoretical aspects of and empirical work in education and health economics.
We cover probability and statistics, some ubiquitous probability distributions, how to make statistical inferences and test hypotheses, and linear regression models.
