Lecturer:
Jana Sekničková
Tutor:
Jana Sekničková
Supervisor:
Department of Software Engineering
Synopsis:

Econometrics is based on economic theory and the relations between economic quantities are expressed by mathematical tools and observed data from economic reality. The course covers basic instruments of econometric analysis as the basic econometric model, the generalized model and the system of simultaneous equations and instruments for econometric model verification.

Requirements:

graduation in mathematics and statistics courses

Syllabus of lectures:

1.Econometric sources.

2.Econometric analysis phases.

3.Microeconomic and macroeconomic models.

4.Analysis of time series.
