Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics Elisabeth Sadoulet and Clair Null University of California at Berkeley Fall 2007 ENV ECON 118 / IAS 118 – Introductory Applied Econometrics Assignment 1 Due Tuesday September 11, 2007 at the beginning of class The first two exercises are based on data that I downloaded from the World Bank Indicators website on infant mortality and GDP per capita (http://devdata.worldbank.org/dataonline/). To construct exercises that are manageable, I have regrouped or selected some countries. But if you are interested in seeing the original data, I have made a graph that shows all the low-income countries. You can also see the values for selected countries in the Table of exercise 2. I nfant m ortality rate (per 1,000 live births) 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 140 160 180 0 2000 4000 6000 8000 10000 2002 GDP/ cap (in 1995 PPP $'s) Source: World Development Indicators (http://devdata.worldbank.org/dataonline/) Exercise 1. Distribution of infant mortality rates at different levels of GDP per capita In the following table, the GDP/capita is characterized in 5 levels: less than 1995 $ 1000, $1000-2000, $2000-4000, $4000-6000, and $6000-10000). Infant mortality rate (IMR, measured number of deaths per 1000 live births) have similarly been grouped in 7 levels. Each cell gives the number of countries with corresponding GDP/capita and infant mortality rate. For example, there are 15 countries with GDP/capita lower than $1000 and infant mortality rate of 115.2.
