Thoughts on Environmental Economics

Good resources for econometrics

Posted by Evan Herrnstadt on February 17, 2009

If that’s not an eye-catching title, I don’t know what is.

As a development economics and politics blogger, Chris Blattman stands out.  However, since adding him to my Google Reader feeds, I’ve noticed that he often links to extremely useful microeconometrics tutorials and guides.  The latest is a guide to regression discontinuity methods in economics, but previous links include IV vs. structural models and Andrew Gelman’s review of a new inexpensive volume on labor econometrics.

Which brings me to Gelman’s blog on statistics in the social sciences.  Gelman is a real live statistician with a joint appointment in political science.  A lot of his posts are pointing out abuses of statistics or interesting statistical tidbits.  But his biggest value added is that he looks as social science methods through the lens of a statistician.
