Behavioral and Experimental Course Structure

A fully-fledged intensive training on the fundamentals of behavioral interventions and experimental approaches for econometric modeling and data analysis using STATA.

Duration: Approx. 17 Hours

Training Mode: Normal group (7-10 trainees), small group (2-5 trainees), and one-to-one

Platform: online (Zoom)

Extra benefits:

  • Certified certificate after completing the training
  • 10% trainee discount on future bookings
  • Eligible to submit their papers at MSR working paper series (SSRN and RePEc indexed).

Training content is systematic and structured as follows:

1.Theoritical Fundamentals

  • Historical development
  • Differences between classical and behavioral theory
  • Areas of application
  • Relevance in modern public policies
  • Choices and Preferences
  • Loss aversion, time inconsistency, social norms, reciprocity, status quo, etc.
  • Beliefs, Overconfidence, optimism bias, availability bias, representativity, etc.
  • Information Processing
  • Dual-process theory, hassle factors, prominence, framing effects, etc.

2. Experimentation Using STATA

  • What is Nudging?

  • Toolkit of instruments

  • Engagement Mechanisms, Default Options ( defaults ), Social Comparison (descriptive and prescriptive), Reminders, Framing

  • Methodological note: Framework on definition, diagnosis, design, and evaluation to implement behavioral interventions.

  • Practical case-study: Real-life behavioral intervention, such as the evaluation of whether a system of message reminders can improve the treatment against life-threatening diseases

  • Exploration of data: outcome variables, patient-level, and household characteristics, and descriptive results

  • Resolution of exercise in STATA: showcasing commands for balancing, descriptive treatment analysis, and econometric robustness.

3.Lessons learned in Public Policy

  • Behavioral insights from case studies: The review will include a wide range of activities and fields such as:

    ·       Consumer protection,

About Behavioral Econometrics

The lessons from behavioral economics have ameliorated social well-being and economic success in recent years. Academics and policymakers now recognize that integrating how individuals behave and make decisions in real life dramatically improves the effectiveness of public policies and the validity of simple theoretical models. Thus, this area of research has enhanced our understanding of the barriers to decision-making and led to the emergence of a wider and richer theoretical and empirical framework to inform human decision-making.

In the context of econometrics, behavioral models may involve accounting for factors such as bounded rationality, cognitive biases, and social influences when estimating relationships and making predictions. Researchers in behavioral econometrics use a variety of techniques, including experimental data, surveys, and observational data, to better capture and understand the complexities of human decision-making.

Overall, behavioral econometrics bridges the gap between economic theory and observed behavior, providing a more nuanced and realistic approach to modeling economic agents.

After finishing the first module, I decided to to do all modules because the first one has opened my mind, because here in Zambia there is no university or college where they offer as full program they way you offer it, it only comes as a course to those who are doing economics.
