Beschreibung:
This course provides an introduction to applied microeconometric program evaluation and thereby creates a valuable basis for understanding a wide range of empirical work not only in economics but also in management, business administration, sociology, or political science. Therefore, we explicitly recommend this course as a basis for all other courses of the chair. It is in the very heart of economic policy to understand how specific policies affect individual decision making. But also in many other areas of life, people are interested in the question how a specific institution/program/historic event/policy causally affects individuals. Although these questions appear universally, the answers are complicated by the fact that the clean identification of cause and effect goes far beyond the demonstration of naive correlations. This course introduces empirical methods that explicitly aim at distinguishing naïve correlation from actual causation. After a theoretical introduction to the respective methods, seminal empirical research papers are discussed in detail. These research papers improve our understanding of how we can apply microeconometric techniques to answer policy relevant questions in a causal way. Moreover, they impressively illustrate the variety of fields in which these methods are used.
