M. Gómez.

This is an introductory course in microeconomic theory and its empirical applications focusing on consumer demand. It uses core of consumer theory and mathematical economics to develop and estimate a variety of econometric models of consumer behavior and demand response. Considers models of aggregate, discrete choice, and discrete-continuous demand models; and their applications using secondary data and large point-of-purchase data. Examines applications of experimental economics to study consumer behavior and demand response. Introduces time series models to forecast demand and analyze price transmission.

Outcome 1: Define the theories and the types of data available for estimating models of consumer demand.

Outcome 2: Develop a variety of econometric models that address fundamental problems in conventional econometric analysis of consumer demand.

Outcome 3: Analyze the literature on applied demand analysis.

Outcome 4: Demonstrate experience in framing, solving, and communicating solutions to economic research problems.

Outcome 5: Preparation for advanced courses in microeconomics.
