Econ3338.01 Introduction to Econometrics Assignment You will be working on a project where you use multivariate regression analysis to analyze
economic data. You will be responsible for determining the research question, formulating the
regression model, finding the relevant data and papers, performing the analysis and discussing the
results. Chapter 19 in Wooldridge’s “Introductory Econometrics” has many useful examples and
suggestions for carrying out an empirical project.
Your final project must be submitted uploaded to a designated folder on Brightspace by December
Please submit an electronic copy of your first draft for a format check by December 6, 2020. If
any important part of the paper is missing or is not properly presented, you will receive an email
within 3-4 days.
1. Cover page. The cover page should be structured as follows: Econ3338.01 Introduction to Econometrics Assignment
Prepared for ECON 3338.01: Introduction to Econometrics
2. Length. The maximum length, including figures, tables and references, should not exceed
3. Font size and space. The text should be double-spaced, with size 12 font.
4. Equations. Use an equation editor (built-in in MS Word) to specify your model(s), and
number all equations in your text sequentially (1, 2, etc).
In this section, describe the research question and explain why it is important. Focus on the
dependent variable. Provide a brief description of what you will do in your project (in each section),
without getting into detail.
2. Literature review Econ3338.01 Introduction to Econometrics Assignment
Provide a short review of journal articles and/or books that are closely related to your project.
Include the complete reference for each reviewed study in the reference section.
This section must discuss in detail what you will do in this project. You should mention the
questions that you will answer and how you plan to do so. For example, you write that you will
investigate the effect of education and experience on wages. This will be done by considering a
multivariate linear model, to be estimated by OLS. If there is a similar paper in the literature, you
must explain the difference between your work and the cited paper. Is it in the methodology? Do
you include more independent variables in your analysis? Do you use a different estimation
technique? Do you have a different data set? Econ3338.01 Introduction to Econometrics Assignment
