Empirical Project

As a condition for advancement to candidacy, a student must submit a paper reporting the results of an original piece of empirical research. This requirement gives training in the integration of theoretical and econometric tools. Normally, it is satisfied by submitting a term paper in conjunction with enrollment in ECON 220F (Applied Econometrics) and receiving at least a B for the course. Please note that successful completion of ECON 280 (Computation) is a required prerequisite for ECON 220F.
