Econometrics using Stata


*** This material here was for a longer course that we ran in 2018/19. The Introduction to Stata lecture in week 4 will cover a subset of this material. ***


You should have received an email from Manor Road IT about obtaining a licence and activating Stata - details are at:


Stata Intro Part I.pdf

Stata Intro Part II.pdf

Stata Intro Part III.pdf

Note that we will not cover slides 23-35 in Part II

This zip file contains the dataset mrw.dta used in the OLS example and the dataset card.dta used in the 2SLS example (and in the Part III slides), as well as Stata versions of the datasets used in the Part I slides. Save the zip file locally and (if necessary) extract these datasets to open in Stata.

Revision Class

June 2018 Q1: 2018_Q1.pdf 

Not June 2018 Q6: not 2018_Q6.pdf

Note that the panel data question we covered in the revision class was NOT the panel data question from the June 2018 exam paper. You can consider this as a sample exam question. The question we covered in the class is available from the link: sample panel data question.pdf

If you are logged into weblearn, you can find the June 2018 exam paper at the link: June 2018 Econometrics

And short sketch answers to the real June 2018 Q6 at the link: real 2018_Q6.pdf
