RGS Mini-Lecture by Prof. Fitzenberger on Quantile Regression

02.-04.04.2014

From April 2nd to April 4th Prof. Bernd Fitzenberger visited the Ruhr Graduate School in Economics (RGS Econ) to teach a RGS Mini-Lecture on "Quantile  Regression". In nine lectures spread over three days, Prof. Fitzenberger first introduced the underlying econometric theory followed by more advanced specifications. Then, he demonstrated how quantile regressions are handled in the statistical software STATA. By showing small examples he applied the formerly discussed methods and highlighted potential problems in the application process.

Since April 2007 Prof. Fitzenberger holds a chair for Statistics and Economics at the University of Freiburg. As one of Germany's top labor economists, Prof. Fitzenberger has published in high-ranked journals such as Journal of Labor Economics, Labour Economics or Journal of Population Economics.

The RGS Econ thanks Prof. Fitzenberger for his dedication within the lectures.
