Statistics, Econometrics and Quantitative Methods

S314 Computational Econometrics Using Stata


Latest Information  

In this section you will always find the latest information regarding the lecture formalities (information regarding online/presence formats, etc.).


The course will be exclusively online. As before, the lecture videos will be provided asynchronously via Ilias. Regarding the exercise classes, there will be a synchronous meeting via Zoom in which we will discuss the exercise sheets and particular problems you had with the respective exercise sheets.

These sessions are planned to be of a "Ask me Anything" type, so I definitely recommend to work on the exercises before you join the session (but you will in any case benefit from these sessions).

We will talk about these sessions in the kick-off session on November 5th, 2020.



Since we're no longer bound by the available space in the PC lab, we are now able to open this course for a broader audience.

The maximum number of participants is now 25-30 participants. 

You still need to apply first (see section below).


Regarding the possibility to work on the exercises from home:
Since the PC lab will not be accessible as usual due to the epidemiological situation, you have the possibility to download Stata onto your private PC and work on the exercises from home (click here for further information). In case you have trouble downloading/installing Stata, or in case you have any other questions, please also send a mail to marian.ruemmelespam
