This course is designed to provide the student with a simple and straightforward introduction to econometrics. Econometrics is a set of research tools employed in the business disciplines of accounting, finance, marketing, and management. It is also used by social scientists, specifically researchers in history, political science, and sociology, and it even plays an important role in such diverse fields as forestry and agricultural economics. Studying econometrics will help the student transition from being a student of economics to a practicing economist. By taking this course, the student will gain an overview of what econometrics is about and develop some “intuition” about how things work. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Economics 203; See also: Mathematics 301)
