## Advanced Quantitative Methods

POL 50050 **PhD Quantitative Methods II**

Tuesday, 11 am-1 pm, on Zoom.

While the statistical package R is the software used on slides, students can use any package of choice. A booklet with commands in R, Stata, and SPSS will be made available. R can be downloaded for free here. A handy overview of R regression commands can be found here: reference card for regression. A more general one for R is here: short reference card. Finally, there is an extensive overview of R packages relevant for econometrics.

A booklet is in production with all relevant commands for the course in a number of different statistical packages, with an early draft here: Statistical Software Guide for Introductory Econometrics. Since we are actively working on this booklet, any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

For R users, please make sure to install the following packages prior to the second lecture of the course:

faraway, arm, lmtest, tseries, ape, MASS, plm, and pcse.

Data can be found on the teaching data page, but for homeworks also original replication data sets might be used.
