The Summer School “Econometrics in Agriculture” is aimed at learning the theories concerning applied econometrics analysis in the agri-food sector. It will also develop proficiency with software to facilitate the initiation of their own research in topics related to the agri-food sector.
The course is oriented toward undergraduate with a strong background, PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and professionals with interest in agricultural economics and applied economics.
The course consists of theory and method sessions, divided in morning sessions for the presentation of theoretical aspects, afternoon practical sessions to provide exposure to analytical exercises, simulations, and econometric estimations (using STATA).
In particular, the practical will include applications of the theory, computer analyses with actual data sets, and interpretations in practice.
At the end of each practical, answers and reflections will be handed in four times.
Participants receive feedback on the next course day.
