__Which Econometrics Regression Course to
take?__

There are three relevant basic regression courses for Economics
majors to consider and there is little advantage to doing all
three.

- Economics 102 (Analysis of Economics Data) This is the required course for the Economics major and the "simplest" course.
- Statistics 108 (Applied Statistical Methods: Regression Analysis) A more advanced course.
- Economics 140 (Econometrics) An advanced course and one required for the Economic and Data Analysis Track of the Economics degree

**For the basic major** Economics 102 is enough.

This admits you to all other Economics courses that have a data
requirement such as Economics 140 - see below.

**For more advanced students** who want to do serious
quantitative work, consider skipping Economics 102, go directly to
Statistics 108 and then Economics 140.

(Economics 140 will fulfill the major requirement in place of
Economics 102).

- Economics 140 (Econometrics) This presents regression theory and methods in more detail than 102.
- Economics 190 (Topics in Economics) includes two econometrics
courses that require ECN 102 or equivalent.

Big Data Analysis is offered In Fall 2018 and

Time Series and Financial data Analysis in Spring 2019.

See http://www.econ.ucdavis.edu/courses/ecn-190-topics.

We expect these courses will become regularly listed courses in 2020-21.

- Several economics courses include some regression analysis of
data.

These courses are in the Data Analytics and Economics Analysis Specialization Track of the Economics major.

Currently ECN 132 (Health Economics) and ECN 145 (Transportation Economics), and some of the ECN 190 courses. More courses may be added over time.
