Deckblatt Econ II


I. Course description:

This course oers an introduction to important extensions of the baseline regression model: non-constant parameters, multiple equations, multivariate cointegration models and limited dependent variables.

  • M-estimation
  • Maximum likelihood estimation (application: binary choice models)
  • General methods of moments estimation
  • Stationary time series regressions
  • Nonstationary time series regressions
  • Vector autoregressive and error correction models


II. Prerequisities:

The course assumes knowledge of the topics taught in the Econometrics I.


III. Exam:

  • 5 LP for Fachprüfungsordnung 2014
  • 8 LP for Fachprüfungsordnung 2007: starred (*) parts of the lecture are for the 8 LP exam only.
  • written exam for both groups: see Univis
