Oeconomica Econometrics Game 2023
Saturday, April 1-Sunday, April 2
- April 01, 2023
"The Econometrics Game is a fast-paced competition where teams of one to four undergraduate students from universities across the US (and some international ones, too!) are given 13 hours with a dataset to devise and answer a question of economic importance. The competition takes place over one weekend: on Saturday, teams write a paper defending a causal claim and the assumptions behind their identification strategy. On Sunday morning, a few finalists are selected to present to a judging panel of UChicago Economics faculty. After this second judging round, we determine final placement and distribute prizes."
Prizes range from iPads to wireless speakers. Event organizers will cover hotel arrangements for all registered non-UChicago students, but participants are responsible for travel to the University of Chicago campus.
This is an exciting opportunity for undergraduates to engage with econometrics research and students at other institutions.
Register by February 18, 2023, to participate!
