## 課程概述 Course Description

We will study basic tools of data analysis including simple and multiple regressions. The purpose of this course is to introduce econometrics models and hypothesis testing. The topics include (1) specification and estimation of the simple linear regression model; (2) properties of the least squares estimators; (3) inference in the simple regression model; (4) functional form and selection of the simple linear regression model; (5) estimation and inference of the multiple regression model. In addition, students will learn how to make use of these tools to conduct basic empirical study. Thus, the class will be proceeded in two ways: lectures and computer hands-on (take place at Computer and Network center). We will use Microsoft Excel with data examples for data analysis and modeling.

## 課程學習目標 Course Objectives

• Learn how to analyze quantitative data through regression analysis.
