Empirical Project: Suggested Outline After you have analyzed your data, then you need to report your results. Here is my suggestion, how to organize the paper. ( This is only one possibility; you may write the paper in the way that you think is best. ) Introduction: Explain your question and hypothesis. Tell me why this question is economically important. Tell me a little about related theories or empirical research. Data: Tell me what data you use, and what variables will help answer this question. It is often good to report a table of descriptive statistics : a list of the variables that you use, their means, and their variances. [ Note: sometimes your variables will not be exactly what you wanted, because the data don t exist. Explain why you used the variables that you did. ] Estimation: Explain what estimation technique you use, and why. [ Note: sometimes you won t have the time or ability to do everything that you should have done. Explain why you did what you did, and why you omitted what you omitted.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
