This course focuses on the interpretation of panel-data estimates and the assumptions underlying the models that give rise to them. Both "real" data and simulation techniques will be used to build intuition for the methods covered in the workshop. The breadth of the lectures will be helpful if you want to learn about panel-data analysis or if you are familiar with the subjects.
The concepts presented are reinforced with practical exercises at the end of each section. We also provide additional exercises and materials at the end of each lecture and access to our experts for any further questions.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The course is geared for researchers and practitioners in all fields. Familiarity with basic time-series, cross-sectional summary statistics and linear regression will be an added advantage
The training aims at building the capacity of researchers and practitioners in all fields to manage and conduct analysis of the panel data.
