KurzbeschreibungThis course is designed for PhD students interested in Energy and Environmental Economics. It is open to advanced Master students from D-MTEC and D-MATH (ETH Zurich).

The focus of the lectures is on applied econometrics in the energy and environmental fields.
LernzielThe goal is to present a coherent description of discrete choice modelling (e.g. conditional logit model) and its generalization in the form of count modelling (e.g. Poisson and negative binomial models) and survival analysis (e.g. proportional hazard Weibull model).

The contents and discussions put emphasis on real examples and policy applications. The presentations and discussions are based on a selection of recent research papers relevant to the covered topics. In each section of the seminar, the students will have the opportunity of reviewing and presenting some of the relevant papers to the class.
InhaltPart I: Discrete Choice Models; Professor Greene (16 hours)

1. Binary choice
2. Ordered choice
3. Multinomial choice
4. Multinomial choice and heterogeneity
5. Latent class models
6. Mixed logit

Part II: Count and survival; modelling; Dr. Martinez-Cruz (13 hours)
1. Count modelling
1.a Poisson model
1.b Negative binomial model

2. Survival modelling
2.a Parametric survival models (e.g. Weibull)
2.b Semi-parametric survival models (e.g. Box-Cox)

3. Latent class specifications
SkriptDuring the course of the lecture notes will be made available to the students.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesStudents are expected to have attended a course in advanced microeconomics and advanced econometrics.

Students will be required to bring for the lab sessions a laptop computer with the installed software (NLOGIT, STATA, or an equivalent package).

RepetitionRepetition nur nach erneuter Belegung der Lerneinheit möglich.
Zusatzinformation zum PrüfungsmodusThe students are required to form groups of two to make one presentation of an already published paper and then write a review report (of 2-3 pages) of the selected paper. The evaluation will be based on the submitted report and the presentation. Students are expected to make a beamer presentation after the lectures each day. The duration of each presentation (and subsequent discussion) should be no longer than 30 minutes. The deadline for turning in the report is one week after the class.
