Data Science for Economics
Traditionally data analyses in economics have focused on answering causal questions. Although this is not true universally, many of the most pressing questions in empirical economics concern causal questions, such as the impact, both short and long run, of educational choices on labor market outcomes, and of economic policies on distributions of outcomes. This makes them conceptually quite different from the predictive type of questions that many of the recently develop methods in machine learning are primarily designed for. Often these questions involve deliberate treatment choices (e.g., educational choices, or price decisions) by individuals or firms intended to optimize outcomes, so that causal effects cannot simply be learned by comparing similar treated and control units. In addition inference plays a more important role than in prediction problems. Nevertheless, there are often predictive components to the models economists use where the predictive tools developed by computer scientists and statisticians can be used after being adapted to the specific context. With many economists now using large scale administrative data, from government (e.g., the work by Raj Chetty in the economics department using Internal Revenue Service data), and private companies (e.g., supermarket data, in the work by Susan Athey from the Stanford GSB and David Blei), text data (e.g., in the work by Matt Gentzkow in studies of polarization and the media), and methods for optimizing medical decisions (Mohsen Bayati at the gsb)these methods are becoming increasingly popular, and demand for more sophisticated methods that take account of the causal nature of these questions and the richness of the data is growing.

Students must complete their primary program’s degree requirements along with the IDPS requirements. Statistics requirements must not unreasonably impact performance or progress in a student’s primary degree program.
The Economics program allows students to replace required courses in Probability and Statistics with more advanced courses by petition.
Special note about integrating IDPS requirements and Economics requirements:
The Doctoral Program in Economics requires students to complete two majors and two minors. IDPS requires one of these major fields to be Econometrics. The IDPS requirement for Computation & Statistics may be used to satisfy one of the minor field requirements in the Doctoral Program in Economics as long as the student’s other minor field is in Economics, and is not a research or ad-hoc minor.

- Medical School Track
- NRT FUTURE Program
Advances in computational speed and data availability, and the development of novel data analysis methods, have birthed a new field: data science. This new field requires a new type of researcher and actor: the rigorously trained, cross-disciplinary, and ethically responsible data scientist. Launched in Fall 2017, the pioneering CDS PhD Data Science program seeks to produce such researchers who are fluent in the emerging field of data science, and to develop a native environment for their education and training. The CDS PhD Data Science program has rapidly received widespread recognition and is considered among the top and most selective data science doctoral programs in the world. It has recently been recognized by the NSF through an NRT training grant.
The CDS PhD program model rigorously trains data scientists of the future who (1) develop methodology and harness statistical tools to find answers to questions that transcend the boundaries of traditional academic disciplines; (2) clearly communicate to extract crisp questions from big, heterogeneous, uncertain data; (3) effectively translate fundamental research insights into data science practice in the sciences, medicine, industry, and government; and (4) are aware of the ethical implications of their work.
Our programmatic mission is to nurture this new generation of data scientists, by designing and building a data science environment where methodological innovations are developed and translated successfully to domain applications, both scientific and social. Our vision is that combining fundamental research on the principles of data science with translational projects involving domain experts creates a virtuous cycle: Advances in data science methodology transform the process of discovery in the sciences, and enable effective data-driven governance in the public sector. At the same time, the demands of real-world translational projects will catalyze the creation of new data science methodologies. An essential ingredient of such methodologies is that they embed ethics and responsibility by design.
These objectives will be achieved by a combination of an innovative core curriculum, a novel data assistantship mechanism that provides training of skills transfer through rotations and internships, and communication and entrepreneurship modules. Students will be exposed to a wider range of fields than in more standard PhD programs while working with our interdisciplinary faculty. In particular we are proud to offer a medical track for students eager to explore data science as applied to healthcare or to develop novel theoretical models stemming from medical questions.
In short, the CDS PhD Data Science program prepares students to become leaders in data science research and prepare them for outstanding careers in academia or industry. Successful candidates are guaranteed financial support in the form of tuition and a competitive stipend in the fall and spring semesters for up to five years.* We invite you to learn more through our webpage or by contacting [email protected] .
*The Ph.D. program also offers students the opportunity to pursue their study and research with Data Science faculty based at NYU Shanghai. With this opportunity, students generally complete their coursework in New York City before moving full-time to Shanghai for their research.

Inside the Student Experience at Booth
Damian Kozbur, PhD ’14, says PhD students at Booth have the flexibility to work on risky problems that no one else has examined.
Damian Kozbur, ’14: 00:01 I went to graduate school in order to develop econometrics tools in conjunction with machine-learning tools in conjunction with economic theory in order to do inference for economic parameters. When you work in high dimensional estimation and you're dealing with problems where the number of variables you're looking at can potentially be in the millions, there's no way to visualize what's going on. Demands now really require that you can handle huge datasets. There's something really satisfying about studying a problem and studying it well. I would say Booth is an excellent place to do it. You have the flexibility to work on really risky problems where you're trying to navigate this landscape that nobody's ever really looked at before. You have an opportunity to dig deeper. You have an opportunity to be rigorous. The faculty is there to help you. They're trying to figure out the same kinds of problems. Things that you figure out cannot always be visualized and it cannot always be easily understood. That doesn't necessarily mean that it's not practical or not useful.
Damian Kozbur, ’14: 01:08 There's an incredible explosion in terms of the amount of data we have on everything. There is an incredible explosion in terms of our understanding of high dimensional econometrics. If you're doing innovative work right now, it will have an impact.

How to Get Into Data Science With an Economics Degree?
Why transition to Data Science from Economics?
Have you ever wondered “So, what’s next for me ?”
Well, you’re not alone! Many graduates aren’t too sure what they want to do after graduation . That’s especially true for Econ majors. Trust me – I am one.
And one of the often-overlooked options is data science.
So, in this article, I'll tell you how to transition to data science from economics.
I'll examine the good, the bad, and the ugly; answer some of the most important questions running through your mind, like: “ Can I”, “ Should I” and “ How can I” make this switch. And I'll explain the pros and cons before finding the best way to transition to data science from economics.
Can I Get Into Data Science With an Economics Degree?
Let’s start with “Can I make the switch?”
The answer here is a resounding “Yes!”.
Roughly 13% of current data scientists have an Economics degree . For comparison, the most well-represented discipline is data science and analysis, which takes up 21% of the pie. Therefore, Economics is indeed a competitive discipline when it comes to data science.
This isn’t at all surprising for several reasons.
First, unlike STEM disciplines, social studies help develop great presentational skills that are essential for any data scientist.
Through presentations and open discussions, students learn how to present a topic, as well as argue for or against a given statement. These activities result in developing a confident and credible way of showcasing actionable insights. Moreover, most econ majors deeply care about human behavior and response to different stimuli.
Hence, social-studies majors can capably serve as mediators between the team and management.
Second, economists often have a different approach than Computer Science or Data Science majors .
Due to their superior understanding of causal relations, social-studies graduates can add another perspective when looking at the data and the results. This is extremely important because their casual inference allows them to think beyond the numbers and extract actionable insights.
Furthermore, Economics frequently intertwines with Mathematics, Finance, Psychology, and Politics.
Therefore, an economist’s approach is always meant to be interdisciplinary.
Finally, the technical capabilities of an economist are often quite impressive.
An average economist has a good understanding of Machine Learning without really referring to it as such. Linear regressions and logistic regressions are studied in almost all economics degrees.
I think we are pretty convinced about the “ Can I” part. So, let’s move to the “ Should I” part.
Should I Transition to Data Science From Economics?
Well, the answer here is “Yes” – with a very small asterisk next to it.
Now, any Economics graduate possesses many of the required skills to transition into Data Science , but that doesn’t necessarily suggest they should do it… They might be more suited for something else.
For example, an Economics graduate with an affinity for Political science will most likely thrive better in a policy advisory role in a bank or hedge fund or even in a government position. Similarly, less-coding-savvy social-studies graduates are a finer fit for data analyst positions , where machine learning algorithms are relied upon less frequently. It’s not that either one wouldn’t be able to succeed as a data scientist, but their skills are better suited for different career paths.
What Are the Requirements to Get Into Data Science With Economics Degree?
So, let’s look at the question like an economist would – through the lens of incentives.
Where does one find the incentives? That’s right - in a job ad.
The main components of a job ad are the level of education, years of experience, and indispensable skills.
Level of Education Required to Get Into Data Science With Economics Degree
We already discussed how popular Economics is compared to STEM degrees, so you know it’s a good choice for a potential career as a Data Scientist. When it comes to economics degrees, 43% of the job ads in our research require a BA and an additional 40% a Master’s. Hence, due to the interdisciplinary nature of social sciences, you don’t need to get a doctorate to be successful in the field .
Years of Experience Required to Get Into Data Science With Economics Degree
As for years of experience, if you’re transitioning from another position in business, you’ve probably had to do some analytical thinking already.
Usually, 3 to 4 years in such a setting are enough to ensure a smooth transition. But this is tightly related to your level of education. A Master of Science will need 2 fewer-years of experience in a business setting due to their additional academic qualifications.
However, if you’re trying to make a transition straight out of college, you might want to go for an entry-level job in the field .
Skills Required to Get Into Data Science With Economics Degree
When it comes to skills, one of the key parts is understanding statistical results and their implications.
Luckily, economics degrees are often based on statistical study cases and experiments, so you should feel comfortable interpreting the results. Of course, this expands to understanding the intuition behind machine learning algorithms and their limitations. As we already stated, Econometrics incorporates linear and logistic regressions, so Economics graduates have a great grasp of the intuition behind Machine Learning models .
Additional skills listed in such job ads include problem solving and strong analytical thinking.
A lot of economics degrees heavily rely on examining study cases, solving practical examples, and analyzing published papers, so you probably possess these qualities already.
Of course, communication skills are essential when working in a team.
As mentioned earlier, Economics graduates often serve as a bridge between the data science team and higher management.
What Programming Languages Do I Need to Know to Get Into Data Science With Economics Degree?
Lastly, anybody making the switch to data science needs a certain coding pedigree.
Whether it’s R, Python, or both , knowing how to use such software is a must if you want to succeed in the field.
If you’re an Economist in your 20s, we can assume you have seen some Python or R code. Hence, you only need to gather more work experience in a business setting.
If you are above 30 and you aren’t a Computer Science graduate, you most probably didn’t use the computer in your university classes. So, you may think your main challenge is the lack of programming skills. But that shouldn’t be the case.
Just focus on the technical part – programming and the latest software technologies. Coding has never been easier, and anyone can learn . Especially a person from an economics background. We all know you have seen some very complicated stuff.
We answered the “can” and “should” parts of the discussion, so let’s dive into the “how-to” part.
How to Transition Into Data Science With Economics Degree?
There are generally 4 crucial things you need to do to make the switch.
Highlight Your Strengths in Your Data Science Job Application
The first one is picking your spot.
As discussed, there is plenty of room for Economics graduates in data science. All you need to make sure you’re ready to fit exactly that role and demonstrate your strengths.
Employers value your understanding of causal inference, so you need to highlight that in your application.
Showcase the analytical part of your work. Mention insights you gained through research or academic work and quote their measurable impact . These bring credibility and provide recruiters with a glimpse of what they’ll be getting once they hire you.
Use Your Social Science Advantage in Data Science
By knowing how surveys and experiments are constructed, you know where to look when examining the results. You see beyond the data and understand which Machine Learning approach should work best in each case.
In contrast, Data Science and Computer Science graduates often have a mindset of “ How can I pre-process the data before I run a machine learning algorithm?”, instead of looking at the way the data was gathered. Your understanding of collinearity, reverse causality, and biases can help you accurately quantify interdependence within the data. Thus, you can have great synergy with the rest of the members on your team.
Start Thinking Like a Data Science Professional
The third and most crucial change you need to make is to adapt your way of thinking.
Even though the cause & effect mentality will help you settle in your career, you need to be able to look for other things as well. The findings of Neural Networks algorithms can be confusing because they discover patterns rather than causal links. Hence, you need to be ready to demonstrate flexibility in your thinking and adjust accordingly.
Of course, this isn’t a change that can happen overnight, but rather one that happens gradually with experience.
Learn a Data Science Programming Language
Last but not least, you’ll need to learn a programming language or BI software.
Lucky for you, programming languages such as Python and R aren’t that hard to learn. And once you’re fluent in one programming language, you can easily master another one, despite coming from an economics background.
This also falls into the “learn as we go” area, so just make sure to be proficient in at least one of either Python or R, and your transition into the field should be smooth as butter.
All things considered, Economics majors can, and should, try to pursue a career in data science because they have the necessary skills and there is high market demand. Surely, economics skills are mandatory for any data science team. Thus, there is no doubt that you, dear Econ major, could be that person.
Ready to Take the Next Step Towards a Data Science Career?
Sign up for the course Starting a Career in Data Science where a top-level data scientist with first-hand experience in recruiting data scientists for his team guides you through all the steps to landing a data science job. You’ll learn how to create your data science project portfolio, build your resume, get an interview through networking, succeed during the phone interview, solve the take-home test, and ace the behavioral and technical questions.
