Participants should be familiar with the following topics:
*Linear algebra – linear equations, matrices, vectors (basic operations and properties).
*Descriptive statistics – measures of central tendency, measures of dispersion, measures of association, histogram, frequency tables, scatterplot, quantiles
*Theory of probability – probability and its properties, random variables and distribution functions in one and several dimensions, moments, convergence of random variables, limit theorems, law of large numbers.
*Mathematical statistics – point estimation, confidence intervals for parameters of normal distribution, hypothesis testing, p-value, significance level.
*Basic econometrics - ordinary least squares method, linear regression, classical assumptions and their violations
These topics correspond to the chapters the appendices of Verbeek’s book, in particular, to the chapters 1-5 and sections: A1, A2, A3, A4, A6, A8, B1, B2, B3 (excluding Jensen's inequality), B4, B5, B6 and B7 (excluding some properties of the chi-squared distribution and the F-distribution).

Cíle předmětu
On the basis of the introduction to econometrics as covered in the course Econometrics, advanced econometric topics will be the subject of this course. Besides conceptual topics such as maximum likelihood estimation, econometric methods for empirical analysis of time series data will be the main content; in addition, models for analyzing limited dependent variables and for analyzing panel data will be covered. The course is designed to provide students with a good knowledge of basic and advanced econometric tools so that:
- they will be able to apply these tools to modeling, estimation, inference, and forecasting in the context of economic problems;
- they have experience in applying the econometric software Gretl for analyzing data;
- they can evaluate critically the results from others who use econometric methods and tools;
- they have a basis for further studies of econometric literature.

The course has been innovated within the Czech Republic Education for Competitiveness Operational Program “Innovation of the postgradute study courses on the Faculty of Economics and Administration MU (CZ.1.07/2.2.00/07.0453).”

Výukové metody
6 lectures á 3 hours (i.e., 24 teaching hours, 45 minutes each), class discussion, homework including computer exercises using Gretl, and presentation of homework by participants; course language is English.
Metody hodnocení
For grading, written homework, presentation of homework in class, and a final written exam will be taken into account. The weight for homework will be 40 %, that of the written final exam 60 %. Presentation of homework in class means that students must be prepared to be called at random to the blackboard.
