BX3022 provides an elementary but comprehensive introduction to econometrics. The subject is designed to provide a conceptual basis of data analysis. Topics include Classical linear regression, basic regression assumptions, homoskedasticity, heteroskedasticity, serial correlation, multicolinearity, simultaneity, dummy variable, structural break, and nonstationarity. Strong emphasis will be given to application of regression analysis with real data to meet the demands of students from a wide range of business subjects including economics, finance, marketing, accounting, and tourism. Applications are conducted by extensive use of Shazam and/or E-views computer software packages. These are window based software and reasonably easy to use.
