One of the most popular statistical frameworks in econometrics is the linear regression model. It has been (and will continue to be) the most common starting point in econo- metric studies. Knowledge of the linear regression model and its extensions is essential for doing empirical work in economics, business, and other social sciences. The purpose of this course is to give students a working knowledge of the most important aspects of the linear regression model. Much of the underlying statistical theory will be covered, but emphasis will also be placed on ap- plication of the theory from a practical standpoint. This course is taught at a relatively advanced level for an undergraduate econometrics course.

    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.
