Students will learn how to read economic journal articles presenting theoretical and empirical research results. The course will also provide students with an understanding of where and how to collect data used in economic analysis, and the limitations that the use of data imposes on economic inference. Students will develop proposals and identify data sets for their own empirical projects to test a hypothesis related to one the topics covered in the course. Those projects will be completed in the senior thesis course (ECON 495 ).
