Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course is divided into the following main parts:

1. Regression analysis using cross sectional data.

In this part, we study how to establish and quantify relationships between variables, mainly on the real estate market. To do this we will first discuss the technique of regression analysis, both for simple regression analysis and for multiple regression analysis.

2. Regression analysis using time series data.

In this part, we study the central issues regarding regression analysis when applied to data over longer periods, i.e., a time series. We look at both time series analysis and residual analysis.

Intended learning outcomes

After taking this course you should be able to use, understand och interpret quantitative methods, e.g., regression analysis, to examine the real estate market, analyse trends, conduct forecasting and construct index series.
