How can different kinds of data inform us on economic issues? On this course you learn how economic data analysis can address practical problems within business, accounting, and development.

Our MSc Applied Economics and Data Analysis is run jointly between our Department of Economics and our Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER), which specialises in the analysis of household and labour market data.

On our course you will be provided the tools for analysing and implementing some of the models that are present in theory modules. You study data-orientated, applied modules, exploring topics including:

Techniques used in the analysis of panel data

The specification of models and the tests of their validity

Methods for analysing persistence over time in economic variables

Handling different types of datasets,

Survey methodology and sampling frames, and how to deal with problems of response rates and attrition

We are top 5 in the UK for research, with over 90% of our research rated as “world-leading” or “internationally excellent”. Much of this world-class research is related to policy, and we have particular strengths in the areas of:

Game theory and strategic interactions

Theoretical and applied econometrics

Labour economics

The quality of our work is reflected in our stream of publications in high-profile academic journals, including American Economic Review, Econometrica, and Review of Economic Studies.
