 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:

Basic knowledge of matematical statistic.
 Syllabus of lectures:

1.Econometric sources.
2.Econometric analysis phases.
3.Microeconomic and macroeconomic models.
4.Analysis of time series.
5.Regression analysis and hypothesis testing.
6.Basic econometric model.
7.Least squares method..
8.Generalized model.
9.Heteroskedasticity.
10.Autocorrelation.
11.Multicolinearity.

 Study Objective:

Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to apply statistic and econometric theory to solution of economic problems, their bachelor's thesis and econometric courses, as well as to advanced study of applied statistics, econometrics and timeseries theory.
