Building on prior coursework (multivariate regression), students learn the econometric tools used by policy and business analysts to quantitatively evaluate the causal impact of various policies, business decisions, and other actions on outcomes of interest. For example, how does Head Start affect the educational attainment of children? How do minimum wages affect employment and firm profitability? Hands-on applications using real data illustrate the core tools of program evaluation econometrics.
