In this course, students develop the skills needed to conduct economic research. These skills include, but are not limited to, identifying a well-posed and feasible research question; placing this research question in the context of existing research; formulating a research plan; identifying and obtaining the required data; conducting a sophisticated statistical analysis to test a given hypothesis; and presenting the results both in the format of a standard economics paper and a formal oral presentation.
