mcEmpirics (pronounced "em-cee Empirics"), developed by Prof. Thomas Siedler (PhD), is an e-learning platform for econometrics.

The website comprises more than 1000 introductory econometric questions, answers to those questions, and references to articles and textbooks. It gives undergraduate students an opportunity to assess their knowledge of introductory econometrics and refresh their skills. The emphasis of the e-learning platform is on applied microeconometrics. mcEmpirics also contains a large number of questions related to the statistical software Stata as well as to recent articles published in leading economic journals. The mcEmpirics website is designed to complement (not replace) lectures, classes, and the literature.

The objective of mcEmpirics is to help undergraduate students of economics and business to deepen their knowledge of econometrics and applied empirical methods. Students from other disciplines and Master’s students can also benefit from the e-learning website.

Quizzes (consisting of true-false and multiple-choice questions) can be played on all devices.. However, to optimize the experience, it is recommended that students use a laptop, tablet, or desktop, as a mobile phone may not display all questions.
