Lerninhalte

The regression discontinuity design and the synthetic control method have become very important econometric methods in the empirical economic literature. In this course, we will discuss studies in the area of labour economics, economics of education, health economics and political economy which apply the synthetic control and regression discontinuity design methods. Students will learn both methods and get an overview about leading articles in various areas of applied economics.
