Ngozi Adeleye Blog
Are you an undergraduate and just starting out on the subject of econometrics? Are you so scared that you cannot afford not passing the course? Congratulations, you are on the right platform. Relax, this blog is principally set up for you…to teach you the basic things you need to know in getting you started on econometrics. Do you remember the feeling of crunching on your favourite cookies? Yeah, mine is ginger cookies (it’s an addiction, sorry)! We are here to have some fun with econometrics by crunching it!…lol. By the time you have fully participated in the activities listed on this blog, you will definitely crunch this course that you were once so scared of….so, how’s that!!!
Are you wondering if there are career prospects as a researcher or data analyst? Of course there are!!! This is because data analysis is relevant in every field and discipline. Therefore, there will be NO shortage of demand for the skills set in this area. Hence, this blog is designed to equip you with those relevant industry-related skills.
To give you a head-start on these courses, I will be posting tutorials and data relating to cross-sectional, time series and panel models using three (3) analytical packages. Yes, you heard that right!…three!!!. Tutorial and video clips will be done using Stata, EViews, SPSS and Excel analytical packages.
You will also have access to the various regression commands and the respective do-files. In case you don’t have any of these analytical softwares installed on your device, do not worry, you can use the excel file data on any econometric tool of your choosing (R, Python, SHAZAM, MINITAB etc.). I will be offering some online courses (with videos) in addition to including some practice questions to improve your regression skills. Basic Stata, EViews, SPSS and Excel commands will be provided too! The online resource provided may not be exhaustive, however, they are well suitable to get you started.
Remember, CrunchEconometrix is tailored for beginners…those newly starting out on the subject and for those who want to improve their understanding of Stata analytical software. However, intermediate and advanced econometricians can join in too by contributing and improving the quality of contents provided. For starters, CrunchEconometrix will build your confidence, teach you how to formulate hypothesis, analyse your model, interpret results and so much more….
I enjoin you to make this educative platform as interactive as ever. Take advantage of the tons of information contained therein.
