### 你将学到什么

Explain the three basic methods of Econometrics.

Apply different econometrics models to examples of daily life.

Interpret and carry out several basic analysis strategies (correlation, regression and distribution.

Ask relevant questions that can be analysed with basic tools.

### 课程概况

The goal of this MOOC is to show that econometric methods are often needed to answer questions. A question comes first, then data are to be collected, and then finally the model or method comes in. Depending on the data, however, it can happen that methods need to be adapted. For example, where we first look at two variables, later we may need to look at three or more. Or, when data are missing, what then do we do? And, if the data are counts, like the number of newspaper articles citing someone, then matters may change too. But these modifications always come last, and are considered only when relevant.

An important motivation for me to make this MOOC is to emphasize that econometric models and methods can also be applied to more unconventional settings, which are typically settings where the practitioner has to collect his or her own data first. Such collection can be done by carefully combining existing databases, but also by holding surveys or running experiments. A byproduct of having to collect your own data is that this helps to choose amongst the potential methods and techniques that are around.

If you are searching for a MOOC on econometrics that treats (mathematical and statistical) methods of econometrics and their applications, you may be interested in the Coursera course “Econometrics: Methods and Applications” that is also from Erasmus University Rotterdam.

### 课程大纲

Introduction

In this week you will be introduced to the MOOC Enjoyable Econometrics.

Basic statistics

This week covers basic statistics like distributions, correlations and t-tests. You will be introduced to these concepts through real-life examples.

Simple regression

Simple regression is the focus of this week, real-life examples will help you to apply your knowledge. This week ends with a test to check if you've mastered the content of the first three weeks.

Multiple regression

This week covers the topic of multiple regression, which is introduced to you through examples from practice.

Variants of multiple regression

In this week you will encounter different variants of multiple regression illustrated with examples.

New cases with new techniques

The last week of this MOOC focuses on real life cases that require more advanced econometric methods.
