Aim of the course is to introduce the basic statistical tools required to conduct and evaluate empirical research in economics and the social sciences. The topics that will be covered include elementary probability theory, sampling, estimation, hypothesis testing, correlation and regression. Special attention will be given to the application of these statistical tools to the analysis of real phenomena. In particular, in order to obtain a better understanding of the concept taught in lectures, an emphasis is placed on using software such as Excel and STATA. This course is a prerequisite for more advanced courses in econometrics. (Cross listed International Economics/International Development.)

Aim of the course is to introduce the basic statistical tools required to conduct and evaluate empirical research in economics and the social sciences. Over the semester we will cover the following topics: Describing data with tables and graphs; Descriptive statistics; Statistical inference: estimation; Statistical inference: significance tests; Comparisons of two groups; Correlation and conditional expectation; Linear regression; Multiple regression; and Regression analysis with time series data. Special attention will be given to the application of these statistical tools to the analysis of real phenomena.
