ECONOMETRICS WITH YOUTUBE DATA: A TIME SERIES TEACHING CASE
Keywords:time series, econometrics, teaching case, YouTube
This paper explains a teaching case I have designed for econometrics and business analytics courses. Time series remains a difficult topic to teach, in part because existing textbooks lack examples using real data and applicable to business problems students may encounter. This case aims to fill that gap using data from my own YouTube channel to give students an opportunity to practice time series analysis. Issues include endogeneity, seasonality, and unit roots. I also include discussion on how the case can be adapted for different course levels.
