Econometric Evaluation of Public Policies (2015/16)

This course presents an overview of econometric methods used for causal inference, i.e., methods designed to estimate the impact of a potential cause (usually a policy intervention or other institutional change) on an outcome of interest. Selection effects can impede attempts to infer causality. Causes and consequences are discussed relying on the counterfactual framework used in the program evaluation approach. The course will be largely based on critical reading of empirical articles, putting emphasis on the identification issues.
