Regression Basics Module

Just need the basics for understanding what a regression is, and what the pros and cons are to using them to find causal effects? This module will get you started.

Introduction to Regression Analysis

We introduce regression analysis in this video, and discuss how it is used to describe data. We also discuss the concepts of reverse causality and simultaneity.

The paper we use for our example is Acemoglu, Johnson, and Robinson (2001). “The Colonial Origins of Comparative Development: An Empirical Investigation.” The American Economic Review, 91(5), 1369-1401.
