skills of students.

Part A: Statistics for Economics
In this course, the learners are expected to acquire skills in collection, organisation and presentation of
quantitative and qualitative information pertaining to various simple economic aspects systematically.

Part C: Developing Projects in Economics 12 Periods
The students may be encouraged to develop projects, which have primary data, secondary data or

do one project each from Part A and Part B.
Some of the examples of the projects are as follows (they are not mandatory but suggestive):
(i) A report on demographic structure of your neighborhood.
(ii) Changing consumer awareness amongst households.
(iii) Dissemination of price information for growers and its impact on consumers.
(iv) Study of a cooperative institution: milk cooperatives, marketing cooperatives, etc.
(v) Case studies on public private partnership, outsourcing and outward Foreign Direct Investment.
(vi) Global warming.
(vii) Designing eco-friendly projects applicable in school such as paper and water recycle.
The idea behind introducing this unit is to enable the students to develop the ways and means by which
a project can be developed using the skills learned in the course. This includes all the steps involved in
designing a project starting from choosing a title, exploring the information relating to the title, collection
of primary and secondary data, analysing the data, presentation of the project and using various
statistical tools and their interpretation and conclusion.
