Welcome to ÊSTIMATE

Due to the uncertain climate and the fact that many universities have cancelled travel until late May (or after), we have cancelled ÊSTIMATE for 2020. We are planning to hold ÊSTIMATE next year in 2021 (in late May or early June).
 
We hope to see you in East Lansing next summer for ÊSTIMATE 2021!


Econometrics has long been a strength of the Economics Department at Michigan State University.  ÊSTIMATE -- Early Summer Tutorial In Modern Applied Tools of Econometrics -- gives empirical practitioners, academic researchers, industry/government researchers/analysts, and graduate students, access to econometrics training usually reserved for students formally enrolled in PhD programs at MSU. ÊSTIMATE is an intensive weekend workshop taught by world class econometricians. ÊSTIMATE’s focus is modern econometric tools as used in practice. Participants learn methods and techniques to use immediately in their empirical research.  ÊSTIMATE’s goal is to broaden and improve the practice of econometric methods throughout empirical research and data analysis in academics, industry and government.

Topics Covered in ÊSTIMATE

Presentations focus on understanding when various models and estimation methods are appropriate as well as how to conduct proper inference in a variety of settings. Methods are illustrated with empirical examples using the econometrics software package Stata. Participants receive access to course/workshop materials including presentation slides, notes, data sets, and Stata .do files.  Topics will include:

  • Linear Models with Cross-Sectional Data
  • Introduction to Regression with Time Series Data
  • Stratified Sampling, and Cluster Sampling
  • Difference-in-Differences Estimation
  • Linear Panel Data Models with Microeconomic Data
  • Linear Panel Data Models with Many Time Periods
  • Nonlinear Models for Cross-Sectional and Panel Data

All are welcome to attend ÊSTIMATE. However, to fully benefit from the workshop, we recommend that participants have an econometrics background comparable to a first-year PhD econometrics sequence.

Dates and Location

ÊSTIMATE will take place June 5th (8:30a; registration at 8:00a) through June 7th on the beautiful campus of Michigan State University.  The instructors will be Jeffrey Wooldridge and Timothy Vogelsang. There will be a complimentary Stata session on Monday, June 8th (8:30am-12:30pm).
