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. It also intends to provide some basic statistical tools to analyse, and interpret any economic information and draw appropriate inferences. In this process, the learners are also expected to understand the behaviour of various economic data.
Unit 1: Introduction (07 Periods)

Unit 2: Collection, Organisation and Presentation of data (27 Periods)
Collection of data  sources of data  primary and secondary; how basic data is collected, with concepts of Sampling; Sampling and NonSampling errors; methods of collecting data; some important sources of secondary data: Census of India and National Sample Survey Organisation.
Organisation of Data: Meaning and types of variables; Frequency Distribution.
Presentation of Data: Tabular Presentation and Diagrammatic Presentation of Data:
(i) Geometric forms (bar diagrams and pie diagrams), (ii) Frequency diagrams (histogram, polygon and ogive) and (iii) Arithmetic line graphs (time series graph).’
Unit 3: Statistical Tools and Interpretation (66 Periods)
(For all the numerical problems and solutions, the appropriate economic interpretation may be attempted. This means, the students need to solve the problems and provide interpretation for the results derived.)
Measures of Central Tendency mean (simple and weighted), median and mode
Measures of Dispersion  absolute dispersion (range, quartile deviation, mean deviation and standard deviation); relative dispersion (coefficient of range, coefficient of quartiledeviation,
coefficient of mean deviation, coefficient of variation); Lorenz Curve: Meaning, construction and its application.
Correlation – meaning and properties, scatter diagram; Measures of correlation – Karl Pearson's method (two variables ungrouped data) Spearman's rank correlation.
Introduction to Index Numbers  meaning, types  wholesale price index, consumer price index and index of industrial production, uses of index numbers; Inflation and index numbers.
Part B: Introductory Microeconomics
Unit 4: Introduction (8 Periods)
Meaning of microeconomics and macroeconomics; positive and normative economics
What is an economy? Central problems of an economy: what, how and for whom to produce; concepts of production possibility frontier and opportunity cost.
Unit 5: Consumer's Equilibrium and Demand (32 Periods)
Consumer's equilibrium  meaning of utility, marginal utility, law of diminishing marginal utility, conditions of consumer's equilibrium using marginal utility analysis.
Indifference curve analysis of consumer's equilibriumthe consumer's budget (budget set and budget line), preferences of the consumer (indifference curve, indifference map) and conditions of consumer's equilibrium.
Demand, market demand, determinants of demand, demand schedule, demand curve and its slope, movement along and shifts in the demand curve; price elasticity of demand  factors affecting price elasticity of demand; measurement of price elasticity of demand – percentagechange method.
