Can you help me understand this Economics question?
Simple Instruction: Look up a data set, and come up with a well-defined research question that you can answer based on this data. Provide an overview of the data and the identification strategy (including potential shortcomings). Your methodology should involve panel data methods, instrumental variables, or a regression discontinuity design. Produce a table of summary statistics describing the data, and a table of results.
In other words,
Come up with a research question: effect of X on Y
When you do regressions in project, use at least one econometric method from 1.Panel data(fixed effect), 2.Instrumental variable, 3.RDD setup, 4.Difference-in-difference. Save the dofile.
The report paper should be 4-5 pages long and tables, plots and data references should be included in paper.
You could use any version of STATA (14, 16, etc…).
I could give some codes provided by professor that might be useful.
