Please note that econometric analysis is NOT a must in BA dissertation. In fact,
many BA dissertations are qualitative or using simple statistical analysis.But it is
compulsory to have basic analysis tables or graphs in excel or from citations that are
indicative to the topic you are answering.
Even though it is a BA Dissertation the paper should include tables/social indexes to sustain
the ideas of the work.
