Course Outline

The goal of this course is to enable students to conduct empirical studies using panel data. Students will learn to use the statistical software package Stata in order to import, manipulate and analyze data. The course focuses on panel data analysis of microdata, with applications in labor economics. Students will work with the German Socio-Economic Panel (GSOEP) - the largest panel data set of German households available and one of the longest-running panel data sets in the world.
