1. The research question or problem being analyzed
2. A small literature review which could either include theory or empirical work
3. The dataset used (source, year, variables, the structure of dataset (panel/ time-series/ cross-section), if you have modified or created variables explain it here.)
4. Tables to be reported
· Summary statistics
· Correlations for all regressors
· Regressions with heteroskedastic standard errors (concise table)
· Table of alternate functional forms (concise table)
5. Conclusion – including the final chosen model – via hypothesis testing.
