ANNOUNCEMENTS

Section

There will be no
section on August 26^{th}
Text
 We will use Introductory Econometrics: A Modern Approach, by Jeffrey M. Wooldridge. The most recent edition is the 5th^{th}, 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.
Software

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 singleuser
sixmonth 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 http://www.stata.com/order/schoollist.html
to purchase (Select University of California, Berkeley, then look for the
product you want).
