ECON 12
Sports Economics Winter 2023

Class Details

This course explores topics in sports economics, a field that covers both how economics can help explain puzzling aspects of sports and how sports can inform our understanding of economics. In small groups, students will identify an empirical question, review the existing literature, gather appropriate data, and use econometric tools to answer the question of interest. I am flexible on the topic and encourage you to pursue an idea that you are interested in! Students need to have taken Econometrics (Econ 255 or a suitable replacement) and the statistical software package STATA will be used for the analysis. The resulting research project, including both a paper and a class presentation, is due at the end of Winter Study.
