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.
