Brief description
This module introduces students to linear regression in economics, and the estimation, inference and hypothesis testing procedures involved. It builds from this introduction to help students to understand the implications of the failure of the assumptions which are fundamental to Ordinary Least Squares (autocorrelation, heteroscedasticity and multicollinearity) and the remedies to these failures.
