Data Science: A Primer for Economists

Gerardo Gomez-Ruano

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The last years have seen an explosion in the demand for data science skills. In this paper, I introduce the reader to the term, point out the technological jumps that allowed the rise of its methods, and give an overview of the most common ones. I close by pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of the corresponding tools as well as their complementarities with economic analysis.
