Professor: Glen Waddell

4.00 credits

  • CRN 26165: Tuesday & Thursday, 1015-1145 @ REMOTE

In this class, we will consider how economists and other behavioral researchers approach data... in our case, informed by economic theory, statistics, and data science. We will spend the majority of our time together investigating the techniques related to prediction and causal inference, and to building a toolkit for the productive adjudication of causal claims. Ultimately, we will move toward understanding data and methods in ways that lead us toward making better decisions and adjudicating the decisions of others with greater sophistication and confidence.
