SANDEE organized a two-week training course in ‘Econometrics for Environmental Economics: Theory and Applications,'during 8th -18th January, 2012. The course was meant for current SANDEE researchers who need to learn applied econometrics in order to complete their research projects.
The workshop seeks to provide researchers with the basic skills necessary to analyze data. The aim is to teach a mix of theory and empirics and provide hands-on training in econometric software such as STATA. The course also hopes to enable those researchers who have their own data to make progress in data analyses and estimation of research results.
What can you expect to do during the course?
The course will cover basic data management, exploration and analyses, including most frequently used regression models (ranging from simple to multiple regressions). As this is a residential course, participants will get enough time to interact with faculty and will also learn from other participants while working on their data sets. Participants are expected to read material prior to the course and participate in detailed assignments and discussions during the course. Some prior experience with statistical analyses is expected.
Participants are asked to bring their own computer and cleaned data set if they have collected data.Participants will be expected to analyze their data and present their results at the end of the workshop. Data collected by participants will be used in practical classes whenever possible. Those who are in early stages of their research will work in teams using data collected by other researchers. SANDEE will provide STATA software for training purposes.
