This is the second course in the core sequence in quantitative methods for the PhD in economics. Building upon the material in Econ 520, this course introduces the econometric analysis of conditional models, focusing on the use of least squares and related methods for estimating conditional expectations, and on linear instrumental variables methods for estimating linear causal relationships.

Note: You may work in groups, but you must write your own solutions in your own words. For assignments requiring computer programming, include the code and make sure the code is adequately commented so that it can be understood by others. Report results of computer exercises cleanly -- do not just print out everything that appears on the screen. "CB" refers to exercises from Casella and Berger, and "R" refers to Ruud.
