This is Robert's teaching page. I have retired from active service on September 30, 2022. My status as a Professorial Fellow implies that my teaching from now on will be welcome but not mandatory. I am planning to offer courses from time to time. I am not teaching in the current winter semester. I will be teaching in the summer semester 2023, I am looking forward to this challenge. All details will be provided on this page.

This page serves as a reference page. It should contain course descriptions for all lecture courses, some links to older material, and announcements that serve as a means of communicating short-run changes.

Course offered in the summer semester 2023

 

040256 KU Panel Data Econometrics (MA)

(4 hours per week, 8 ECTS)

 

 

Time and location:

Monday, 4:45pm-6:15pm, HS8

Wednesday, 1:15pm-2:45, HS17

 

Starts: March 1, 2023

 

The course introduces participants into the econometric methods that are currently used in analyzing panel data. It has the following main building blocks:

 

1.      Models for panel data (fixed and random effects, one-way and two-way, estimation)

2.      Tests (poolability, Hausman test, autocorrelation, heteroskedasticity)

3.      Dynamic panels (Nickell bias, instrumental variable estimation, generalized method of moments)

4.      Panel tests for unit roots, panel cointegration

 

Literature:

Baltagi, B.: Econometric Analysis of Panel Data

Hsiao, C.: Analysis of Panel Data

 

Assessment is based on two components: two written tests (30% each) and an empirical project (40 %). The empirical project consists of writing a short paper, presenting own results and discussing the projects of fellow students. Dropping the course without a grade is possible on request (please contact me) before the first test. Passing the course requires both at least 50% of the maximum achievable points and attendance at the first written test.

Dates for all tests are convened in class. Possible time slots for such tests may be after Easter (midterm) and in early June (finals).

News

 

Regarding the continuing coronavirus problem, this appears to be one of the issues that has gradually faded and disappeared in most places. So, it is unlikely to affect any future teaching activities.

 


General information for all courses


If you have any paper material for me (such as homework assignments or forms), please leave it with our administration. Never leave any material with other faculty.

 

In case you cannot attend a test (not an exam; there are special regulations for no-show at exams) for important reasons or you are unable to be present at any other dated event within a course, please give me notice via e-mail immediately. I expect such notifications to arrive within three days after the event that you missed.
