Mastering Econometrics: A Free Online Course

From Marginal Revolution University comes a new course, Mastering Econometrics, taught by MIT professor Josh Angrist. They write:

If you’re looking to untangle cause and effect in a complex world, then econometrics is what you seek. Join MIT professor Josh Angrist, aka Master Joshway, and learn to master the econometrics “Furious Five”: random assignment, regression, instrumental variables, regression discontinuity designs, and differences-in-differences methods. Think econometrics is boring? So it was once, but will be no more! Skipping theoretical tedium, we use real empirical questions to bring the numbers to life. Does an expensive private university education pay off with higher earnings? Does health insurance really make you healthier? Does legal drinking cost lives? Econometrics is a journey, grasshopper.

Get started on the course here. Also see the professor’s book, Mostly Harmless Econometrics: An Empiricist’s Companion.

Mastering Econometrics will be added to our list of Free Economics Courses, a subset of our collection, 1,700 Free Online Courses from Top Universities.
