About

The Barcelona GSE Microeconometrics Summer School specializes in the application of econometric techniques and is taught by experts in the field.

The increasing availability of individual data from surveys has led not only to a significant growth in the number of academic jobs of an empirical nature using this type of information but also to a greater number of studies commissioned by public and private institutions in which this type of data is used.

The characteristics of this type of data are such that statistical and econometric techniques appropriate for their treatment have a specific nature, generally differentiated from those appropriate for time series data. The qualitative nature of most of the information, the representativity of the samples used and the censoring issues associated to the dependent variables are, among others, some of the aspects that distinguish these techniques from an econometric perspective....
