This project aims to apply some newly developed panel data methods to empirically study some economic questions. We hope to re-examine some well-known studies and obtain some new insights with the new methods. It would be desirable if the applicants know some basic econometrics and how to use some statisitic software, such as Stata and Matlab, though it is not a requirement.
The applicant is expected to do some thorough literature review, collect data, and perform data analysis using some new panel data methods in econometrics. It is not required that the applicants know panel data mehtods, as the supervisor will provide some necessary training on panel data.
Applicant's Learning Objectives:
1. Learn more about panel data methods in econometrics.
2. Learn how to do empiical research in economics.
