Description:
Titel des Moduls: Entwicklungsökonomie
Art und Verwendbarkeit des Moduls: Wahlveranstaltung im Bachelor-Studiengang Volkswirtschaftslehre
Modulverantwortliche/r: Prof. Dr. Markus Frölich
Turnus des Angebots: jedes Semester
ECTS-Punkte: 6
Lehrmethode (Umfang): Blockseminar (2 SWS)
Arbeitsaufwand: Präsenzzeit Seminar: 21 Stunden; Zeit für die Anfertigung der Seminararbeit, für die Vorbereitung der Referate sowie für das Selbststudium 147 Stunden
Unterrichtssprache: Deutsch
Teilnahmevoraussetzungen: Grundlagen der Ökonometrie
Benotung und Vergabe von ECTS-Punkten: schriftliche Seminararbeit, Vortrag, Korreferat, aktive Mitarbeit im Seminar
Ziele und Inhalte des Moduls: Das Seminar umfasst aktuelle Themen bezogen auf Arbeitsmärkte in Entwicklungsländernmit einem empirischen mikroökonometrischen Fokus. Die Themen beinhalten unter anderem: Kinderarbeit,informelle Arbeitsmärkte, Unternehmertum, die Schaffung von Firmen, Arbeitsmarktregulierungen, Mikrokredite, Mikroversicherungen, etc. Die Seminartermine werden nach den Wünschen der Studierenden ausgewählt. Die Studierenden sollen aktuelle Probleme von Entwicklungsländern erörtern und erkennen sowie empirische Studien zudiesen Fragen bewerten und diskutieren. In diesem Sinne ist es eine Mischung zwischen einem reinen Seminar zu Entwicklungsländern und einem angewandten Ökonometrieseminar. Die Studierenden sollen also auch angewandteökonometrische Papiere verstehen, diskutieren und vorstellen, um die konkrete empirische Forschungsweise zuerlernen. Das Seminar ist insbesondere auch als eine Vorbereitung auf eine mögliche Bachelorarbeit im Bereich derangewandten empirischen Forschung gedacht, welche dann üblicherweise eine eigenständige ökonometrische Analyse mit Sekundärdaten verlangt. Das Seminar stellt somit eine Brückenfunktion zwischen den Grundlagenvorlesungenzur Ökonometrie, welche eher das Methodenwissen vermitteln, und der eigenständigen empirischen Analyse in der wissenschaftlichen Forschung dar.
Erwartete Kompetenzen nach Abschluss des Moduls: Die Studierenden haben gelernt, einen Aufsatz zu einem Thema aus der Entwicklungsökonomie zu schreiben und zu präsentieren, wobei sie den Bezug zu mikroökonomischen Modellen und insbesondere empirisch-ökonometrischer Analyse herausgearbeitet haben. Dies umfasst somit auch einekritische Analyse und Begutachtung von empirischen Studien und deren Methodik, insbesondere der Ökonometrie, derDatengrundlage und der Umsetzung der empirischen Herangehensweise.
Erwartete Zahl der Teilnehmer/innen: max. 13

Description:

Module number and title: Power Analysis

Form and usability of the module: Elective module for M.Sc. in Economics

Responsible teacher of the module: Dr. Ingo Steinke

Cycle of offer: Irregular

ECTS credits: 5 ECTS

Teaching method (hours per week): Lecture (2 SWS)

Workload: 150 hours in total; 21 hours in class and 129 hours for independent studies and exam preparation

Course language: English

Prerequisites: Advanced Econometrics I or equivalent

Grading and ECTS credits: Final exam (60 min)

Goals and contents of the module: For the planning of statistical studies it is important to know how to choose the sample size in order to be able to prove a specific effect. Moreover, it is useful to compute the power of a test under certain alternatives in order to know what conclusion can be made even if the null hypothesis is not rejected. In the lecture the power of tests is derived and computed under alternatives in several models, e.g. for simple t-tests and in variance, regression, and meta analysis models. The theory behind the formulas will be discussed. Using Stata the power of the tests is computed and sample size computations are performed.

Expected competences acquired after completion of the module: The students know distributional properties of the normal, t-, chi-square, and F-distribution and know how these distributions are constructed. For specific models the students can derive the formulas for the computation of the power. They can compute the power of tests using Stata and determine the sample size necessary to distinguish a specific effect.

Expected number of students in class: 15

Learning target:

Attendants of the course will develop an understanding for typical behaviour of network data in different real-world situations. Moreover, they will be able to understand how network data differs from other statistical observations and how to analyze it. Lastly, attendants will acquire modelling knowledge for functions on networks and the network itself.

Recommended requirement:
Statistics 1 and 2 or equivalent

Description:
Many observations occur as networks, e.g., association networks between users of social media platforms. In this course we want to study in which situations this type of data comes up and how it can be treated statistically. We will formulate various empirical quantities which can be used to describe different features of networks. While doing this we look at examples and try to get an idea of how these features are usually exhibited in real-world data examples. Then, we will investigate how networks can be appealingly plotted and how the network can be partitioned in order to reveal a hidden group structure. We will see that sampling of subnetworks poses new problems and how to overcome them in certain situations. In the last part of the course we will study models for random networks as well as prediction of future behaviour of the network itself as well as functions on the network (e.g. the spreading of opinions through a network). Throughout the course, we will try to illustrate concepts and features of networks with examples, both real-world data as well as simulated data (for this part R knowledge will be helpful).
