Class Material

Some materials from the courses I have been a teaching assistant for at Columbia.

Data TA

  • For notes on how to use R for economics, please take a look at my colleague (and former data TA) Len's notes.

  • For notes on how to use Stata, please see this guide.

  • For an excellent primer on how to use Python in economics, it is useful to look at the lectures of Sargent and Stachurski found here. Most data analysis in Python utilizes the popular Pandas package. Please see the documentation for this package here.
