In this class, we explore event data to uncover the causal impact of an event on a specific variable of interest. We aim to develop data analysis skills to understand how events influence the chosen variable, such as trade agreements on trade flows or earning calls on stock prices. Through these analyses, we seek meaningful insights into event-variable relationships
