The aim of this course is to prepare students for the Econometric Techniques subject (IDEC8017) and other econometric related study or research in the IDEC Master of International and Development Economics Program. The course is designed to provide fundamental knowledge in probability theory, statistics and econometric techniques. There will also be two computer sessions on using the STATA software package. As a preparatory course, the class environment will be structured to help students become familiar with the ANU teaching environment, resources available to students, and requirements of formal coursework. In-class exercises are an important component of teaching in the course. Student participation in discussion of issues in econometrics and statistics, and study at ANU more broadly, is also highly encouraged.
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
