This is an introductory course in microeconomic theory and its empirical applications focusing on consumer demand. It uses core of consumer theory and mathematical economics to develop and estimate a variety of econometric models of consumer behavior and demand response. Considers models of aggregate, discrete choice, and discrete-continuous demand models; and their applications using secondary data and large point-of-purchase data. Examines applications of experimental economics to study consumer behavior and demand response. Introduces time series models to forecast demand and analyze price transmission.
