# Download Coursera – Econometrics: Methods and Applications 2023-3

## Description

Econometrics: Methods and Applications is published by Coursera Academy. Do you want to know how to analyze and solve business and economic questions with data analysis tools? Wes Econometrics by Erasmus University Rotterdam is the right course for you as you learn how to translate data into models for forecasting and decision support. When you know econometrics, you can turn data into models for predictions and decision support in a variety of fields, from macroeconomics to finance and marketing. Our course begins with introductory lectures on simple and multiple regression, followed by topics such as addressing model specification, endogenous variables, binary choice data, and time series data. You learn these key topics in econometrics by watching videos, with in-video quizzes, and by doing training exercises after the video.

You can follow the MOOC without reading additional resources. Further study of the topics discussed (including the basics) is provided in the textbook we wrote and on which the MOOC is based: Econometric Methods with Applications to Business and Economics, Oxford University Press. The links between MOOC modules and book chapters are shown in the course guide. Each topic is illustrated with simple examples. At the end of each lecture, you will find a practical exercise. Three lectures on matrices will introduce you to the basic terms and properties of matrices, including permutation, trace, rank, inverse, and positive definiteness. Two lectures on probability will teach you the basics of univariate and multivariate probability distributions, especially the normal and correlated distributions, including the mean, variance, and covariance. Finally, two lectures on statistics will introduce you to the basic ideas of statistical inference, especially parameter estimation and testing, including the use of matrix methods and probability methods.
