Advanced Econometrics 2400-M1PPZEKO
• The lecture concerns three important areas of modern econometrics: models estimated on time series and panel data, and applications of Maximum Likelihood Method. During the lecture, the most important statistical models used in modern econometrics will be discussed. The lecture will be illustrated with simple empirical examples.
• Tutorials are used to familiarize students with the use of econometric tools discussed during the lecture and to check students' knowledge on an ongoing basis. It is not the purpose of the tutorials to repeat the lecture.
Subject of the lecture:
• Comparison of competing models.
• Problems related to sequential testing of hypotheses.
• General to specific method.
• Model selection: information criteria (AIC and BIC).
• Models based on time series:
• Seasonality definition.
• Definition of a stationary process.
• Testing the order of integration of variable - DF, ADF, KPSS test.
• Spurious regression problem.
• Definition of DL and ADL models.
• DL and ADL models: long- and short-term multipliers, average delay.
• Testing for Granger causality.
• ARIMA models.
• Cointegration and Error Correction Mechanism.
• Maximum Likelihood Method:
• Definition of the reliability function.
• Testing hypotheses in the context of Maximum Likelihood Method.
• Discrete dependent variables:
• Models for binary dependent variables (LMP, logit, probit).
• Model for discrete choice (ordered logit and ordered probit).
• Censored variables (tobit).
• Models estimated on panels:
• Properties of panel data and cross-sectional data.
• Individual effects.
• Definition of the Fixed and Random effects model.
• Hausmann test for the correctness of the variable effects model.
• Instrumental Variables Method (IV):
• Conditions that instruments must meet.
• Selection of instruments.
• A simple and generalized IV estimator.
• Hausman and Sargan test.

• The final grade is issued as the weighted average of the exam grade and tutorials grade with 2/3 and 1/3 weights respectively.
• Only those student who have passed the tutorials will be admitted to the exam.
• The written exam lasts 90 minutes, consists of 4 theoretical questions and 3 tasks. Theoretical questions will be modified versions of the questions which can be found at the end of the sub-chapters in the textbook.
