Una herramienta para la vida

Do you think linear regressions are just not enough? 
Why not learn about semi and non-parametric models!

OBJECTIVE

The "Applied non-parametric econometrics" by Jeffrey S. Racine (McMaster University) (visit their website here) seminar from Universidad del Rosario, seeks to familiarize students with nonparemetrics and semiparametrics econometrics framework.

By the end of the program, students should be able to understand the advantages, limitations and suitability of the main models.

BENEFITS

Understand basic concepts, assumptions and restrictions behind non-parametric and semiparametric models.

Apply partially linear models and single index models using the statistical software R.

Understand the differences, requirements and limitations of non-parametric frontier models.

AIMED AT

Researchers and professionals who are interested in application areas such as economics and other social sciences. It's desirable that attendees are familiar with standard statistical and econometric techniques, such as multiple regression, instrumental variables and binary choice models.

METODOLOGÍA

La metodología a desarrollar se basará en varias estrategias:

1. Clases presenciales guiadas a la actualización de conocimientos médicos.
2. Material de apoyo, que estará disponible en el aula virtual, cada docente colaborará en la elaboración de material de estudio que será virtual en la primera edición del curso, y según viabilidad se decidirá si se realiza la impresión de dicho material.
3. Se proporcionan materiales de apoyo, como videos de las mismas clases, que se encontraran en la plataforma de la UR, además se contarán con microvideos con los datos más relevantes llamados "cápsulas de información" a las que se podrá acceder irrestrictamente durante todo el transcurso del curso.
4. Se realizará un examen inicial para identificar las áreas a reforzar del estudiante, con un examen a mitad de curso y un examen final en el que se evidencie el avance durante el mismo.
5. Se realizará un módulo de comprensión de lectura y análisis crítico de la literatura, que le permita a los estudiantes, desarrollar dichas habilidades.
6. Habrá transmisión de las diferentes clases, en tiempo real.
7. Habrá acceso a aclaración de dudas y acompañamiento durante el curso por parte de la dirección académica del curso.

METHODOLOGY

This course follows Li, Q. and J. S. Racine (2007), non-parametric Econometrics: Theory and Practice, Princeton University Press, ISBN: 0691121613 (768 Pages). It combines a gentle introduction to the econometric theory behind the methods, but with an emphasis on the need of applied econometricians and social scientists.

The course is lab-based, thus students will be required to follow work on assignments with the help of the teacher. All the material and practical work is based on the statistical software R through the IDE Rstudio (visit their website here). While laptops with the software are available during the course, we encourage the students to bring their own laptops with their own data.

The np package for R (visit their website 
here) will be used for the non-parametric and semiparametric analysis, and is available directly from the Comprehensive R Archive Network.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Ph.D. University of Western Ontario, 1989, is a Professor in the Department of Economics and a Professor in the Graduate Program in Statistics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at McMaster University. He occupies the Senator William McMaster Chair in Econometrics and is a Fellow of the Journal of Econometrics. He has held previous appointments at Syracuse University, the University of South Florida, the University of California San Diego (two-year visiting appointment), and York University.

His research interests include non-parametric estimation and inference, cross-validatory model selection, frequentist model averaging, non-parametric instrumental methods, and entropy-based measures of dependence and their statistical underpinnings. He is also interested in parallel distributed computing paradigms and their application to computationally intensive non-parametric estimators.

He is currently serving as an Associate Editor for Econometric Reviews and the Journal of Econometric Methods and as the Deputy Editor-in-Chief for Econometrics.

He has co-authored the graduate textbook non-parametric Econometrics: Theory and Practice (co-authored with Qi Li, published by Princeton University Press, 2007, 768 pages, with a Chinese translation published in 2015) and has authored the monograph non-parametric Econometrics: A Primer (published by Foundations and Trends in Econometrics, 2008, with a Russian translation published in the journal Quantile in 2008). He has published extensively in his field and has co-authored the R packages np and crs that are available on the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN).
