## Module content and teaching

###### Principal aims

The aim of the module is to provide students with the theoretical and empirical tools to conduct rigorous applied microeconomics research. The course builds on the structural empirical methods learnt in the second year, expanding knowledge of limited dependent variable methods and panel data models. It also provides an introduction to programme evaluation techniques, exploring ways in which researchers can identiy causal relationships. This module will be particularly valuable to students interested in conducting applied economics research as part of their final year dissertation or in their future careers.

###### Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should: Understand the difference between correlation and causation; Be able to analyse different tpes of microeconomic data using empirical techniques designed to produce causal estimates; Be able to interpret the results of such analyses; Understand the features of a robust evaluation and be able to critically assess empirical papers; Be equipped to tackle advanced microeconometric modules at postgraduate level.

###### Timetabled teaching activities

20 Lecture hours and 4 Support and Feedback classes.
