Limited Dependent Variables Syllabus: HT 2021

My lectures on limited dependent variables and sample selection are scheduled for weeks 1 and 2 of HT 2021. Due to current government restrictions, these will take place remotely. I will provide pre-recorded videos for you to watch in lieu of the regularly-scheduled Monday and Wednesday class meetings. On Fridays from 9:00-10:30am I will conduct a live Q&A over Zoom.
