August 18:


-     There will be no section on August 26th


-      We will use Introductory Econometrics: A Modern Approach, by Jeffrey M. Wooldridge.  The most recent edition is the 5thth, but earlier editions are acceptable substitutes.  There will be several copies on reserve at Moffitt Library.  Reserve call numbers will be posted here when they are available.


-     Problem sets will require you to use a data analysis and statistical software program called Stata. We will begin using Stata in a tutorial during the second week of class.  If you want to purchase your own copy of the software for your laptop or home computer, a single-user six-month license for Small Stata (sufficient for this course) is available through Berkeley’s GradPlan for $38. (An annual license is $54.)  Note that a license allows you to install the software on up to three of your own computers.  See to purchase (Select University of California, Berkeley, then look for the product you want).
