The participants of this pre-conference workshop will learn to conduct various econometric analyses with R. In order to achieve this, the workshop will mostly consist of practical exercises. The workshop will be divided into two parts. The first part will give an introduction to R with special emphasis on applications in agricultural economics and applied microeconometrics. This part of the workshop will be designed for participants who have no or only little experience with R. The second part of the workshop will be designed for participants who have at least a little experience in R, e.g. obtained in the first part of the workshop. The participants will learn to prepare and aggregate data; estimate production functions using OLS and panel data methods and calculate elasticities based on the estimation results; conduct efficiency analysis using Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) and Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA); and use nonparametric kernel regression.
