The contents of this course are a logical continuation of those included in Econometrics I. It covers a selection of current topics: instrumental variables regression, program evaluation using randomized experiments and natural experiments, forecasting and estimation of dynamic causal effects, advanced tools for time series analysis.

Each chapter will be illustrated by corresponding empirical applications.

1. Instrumental variables regression

2. Experiments and quasi-experiments

3. Introduction to time series regression and forecasting

4. Estimation of dynamic causal effects

5. Additional topics in time series regression
