Sumario La ciencia económica es un tipo específico de conocimiento dentro de las ciencias sociales. Para lograr realizar un estudio del conocimiento económico de tal naturaleza, o sea, para hacer ciencia económica, es preciso seguir determinados procedimientos que nos permitan realizar un estudio de economía aplicada. No es posible obtener un conocimiento económico racional, sistemático y organizado actuando de cualquier modo; es necesario seguir una metodología y técnicas que ya son aceptadas en la profesión económica para poder tener un camino que nos aproxime a nuestra meta que es la realización del estudio económico. El propósito del presente documento es el de explicar la metodología de la economía, al combinar la teoría y las aplicaciones económicas, para poder realizar un estudio económico científico aplicado. Abstract The purpose of the study is to explain the methodology of economics, using economic theorizing and econometric applications in order to help the researcher write an applied economics scientific paper.
