Econometrics In-class Labs

tidyverse cheat sheet (PDF)

During most class periods, my introductory econometrics students work on labs in small groups (2-3 students). These are meant to introduce coding concepts and to gain hands-on experience with econometric estimators. Below is a complete list of labs, available in three different file formats. Labs are also available in a GitHub repository (see GitHub for license details).
