## by Christopher Mecklin

Notes for STA 440/441 at Murray State University for students in Dr. Christopher Mecklin’s class. […] Let’s start with an informal notion of probability, where we try to assign a numerical percentage or proportion or fraction to something happening. For example, you might be interested in the chance that it will rain tomorrow. How would you go about assigning a numerical value to this event? This would be an example of the subjective approach to probability, based on an event that cannot be repeated, although a weather forecaster might run many simulations of a weather model (which would be … Read more →

# 10 Fundamental Theorems for Econometrics

## by Thomas S. Robinson (

This book walks through the ten most important statistical theorems as highlighted by Jeffrey Wooldridge, presenting intuiitions, proofs, and applications. […] A list of 10 econometric theorems was circulated on Twitter citing what Jeffrey Wooldridge claims you need to apply repeatedly in order to do econometrics. As a political scientist with applied statistics training, this list caught my attention because it contains many of the theorems I see used in (methods) papers, but which I typically glaze over for lack of understanding. The complete list (slightly paraphrased) is: As an exercise … Read more →
