Passing the course, student will be able to work with important basics of the descriptive analysis and statistics, data visualization, regression analysis, binary choice models, count and panel data models using statistical software R.

Lectures

Tutorials

Course contents includes the basics of R, pre-processing and data visualization techniques, study and application of linear, non-linear models, and basic panel data models. Students will apply and analyze the results using the R software. The student will prepare and present both in oral and written form a research project in which the concepts studied will be discussed and applied to a particular problem.

The lectures contain slides and we will go trough some in class labs which try to make it easier to digest the materials for students. On this way, they would get hands on experience with applied data analysis issues and R coding.
No final exam. Students need to elaborate their own research project using data, and R code. The course assessment will be based on this research project.

No other requirements.

Subject has no prerequisities.
