Applies econometric models using data measured as counts, including the poisson and the negative binomial, and extensions that incorporate inflated or truncated counts. They then consider tobit and heckit models which adjust for truncation and censoring in the general linear model. Finally, they learn how to correct for simultaneity bias and heteroskedasticity using Instrumental Variables approaches. Usually offered every year.
