The purpose of the empirical project is to enable students to conduct an in-depth empirical investigation using socio-economic data in order to test economic theories or explore empirical facts that can shape economic theories. This involves analysing the data, building an empirical model, evaluating the model, interpreting results, and drawing inferences.
