A speech on econometrics and R

From next week I'll go to Beijing and Shanghai respectively to give a speech on R. Yesterday I just finished the beamer for presentation in English. Not very long, because I'm afraid of making any serious mistakes.

Here I would like to list the outline.

Topic:

From Economics to R --Using R in Economics and Econometrics

(At first it was "Using R in Economics, Statistics and Econometrics". However, I think it is no good to mention "statistics" since I'm not professional in that area. The same to "economic statistics". Therefore I only mention economics and econometrics instead eventually.)

Outline:

1 Economics and Statistics

  • The Irreplaceable Support
  • Software about econometrics

2 Main Econometric Methods

  • Similar to statistics
  • Realization in R

3 Now Work with R!

  • Transfer the Data
  • Cooperate with LATEX
  • My own experience

Maybe the outline is a little too simple, but in fact I don't have too much to talk, since I'm a beginner of economics and R myself. I really appreciate the opportunity to give a speech on the 2nd Chinese R Conference, and I do hope that there will all right. Anyway, I have no better choice but do my best.

A more detailed post may appear after the lecture.
