### How many variables do you investigate in a controlled experiment?

There are complex models that allow researchers to study several variables if the experiment is carefully designed and very carefully carried out. These models can show whether a variety of variable interactions occur, and if that is your focus then these models are good. But the best experiments investigate a small number of variables, as few as one.

### What is one drawback of using models to represent scientific processes?

Models may not take into account all of the variables.

### Definition for decision models and decision variables?

Decision variables are the variables within a model that one can control. They are not random variables. For example, a decision variable might be: whether to vaccinate a population (TRUE or FALSE); the amount of budget to spend (a continuous variable between some minimum and maximum); or how many cars to have in a car pool (a discrete variable between some minimum and maximum).

### What are econometric models?

Econometric models are causal models that statistically identify the relationships between variables and how changes in one or more variables cause changes in another variable.

### How do structural models work?

Structural models of the economy try to capture the interrelationships among many variables, using statistical analysis to estimate the historic patterns.

### What is the similarity between computer models and physical models?

They are both models, andthey both can be explained.

### What secondary type of data is used in econometric models?

Economic forecasting models predominantly use time-series data, where the values of the variables change over time.
