Description

Designed to promote students' understanding of econometrics and to build a more operational knowledge of economics through a meaningful combination of words, symbols and ideas. Each chapter commences in the way economists begin new empirical projects--with a question and an economic model--then proceeds to develop a statistical model, select an estimator and outline inference procedures. Contains a copious amount of problems, experimental exercises and case studies.
