Level: Graduate

Offered by: Department of Economics, College of Arts and Sciences

Taught by: Mehmet Caner

This is a graduate-level course on high-dimensional econometrics, aka big data. This means we analyze two cases, where the regressors are growing with sample size. First, when the regressors are less than the sample size, where the main emphasis will be in asymptotics and selection consistency proofs. We will see a benchmark estimator: adaptive lasso. The second case is when the number of regressors are larger than sample size; there we focus on finite sample issues (oracle inequalities) and then we talk about building confidence intervals in high dimensional cases. In certain weeks, we will work on R programs that run high-dimensional regression. The important packages in R are lars and glmnet; we will learn how to implement them.
