### PIDE 2016

 This will serve as the website for course notes for a course on Bayesian Econometrics. The associated blog for students to ask questions and get answers is Bayesian Econometrics Blog  -- For OTHER Econometrics Courses, see REFERENCESThe goal of the course will be to learn the materials presented in the last three chapters [16,17,18] of my textbook: Statistical Foundations for Econometric Techniques. .The entire book can downloaded from the Genesis Library: The individual chapters 16,17 and 18 are attached as pdf documents on the webpages for the lectures in which these chapters are covered.  PRELIMINARIES: This material should be studied and mastered BEFORE starting the courseTHE FIRST UNIT OF THE BAYESIAN COURSE:BE L01: URDU: Motivational Talk to Encourage Students to Learn, and Islamic Principles of Learning.  BE L02: URDU: Foundations of ProbabilityBE L03: ENGLISH: BE L03a: Part 1: Bayes Formula and Explanation of Bayesian Argument in the simplest case. BE L03b: Part II: Simple Random Samples and Binomial Distribution.BE L04: Consists of two partsBE L04a: ENGLISH: Part I: Conventional Inference for Random Samples using Pivotal statistics in a Binomial Model BE L04b: ENGLISH: Part II: Analysis of Conjugate Prior Beta Densities and random samples from these densities.BE L05: Going from data to density using Kernel Density Estimators BE L06: Prior to Posterior Calculation for the Beta-Binomial Model BE L07: Matching Models to Reality -- Assessing Binomial Models for match to real world physical processes.BE L08: Reasoning behind p-values, and adjusting p-values for multiple tests.BE L09: Using simulations to calculate p-valuesBE L10: Computing p-values for contingency tables - testing for independenceBE L11: Pearson's Chi-Square in Contingency Tables; Analogous Bayesian AnalysisBE L12: Review of Normal Distribution
