CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Introduction to Econometrics has been written as a core textbook for a first
course in econometrics taken by undergraduate or graduate students. It is
intended for students taking a single course in econometrics with a view
towards doing practical data work. It will also be highly useful for students
interested in understanding the basics of econometric theory with a view
towards future study of advanced econometrics. To achieve this end, it has a
practical emphasis, showing how a wide variety of models can be used with the
types of data sets commonly used by economists. However, it also has enough
discussion of the underlying econometric theory to give the student a knowledge
of the statistical tools used in advanced econometrics courses.
* A non-technical summary of the basic tools of econometrics is given in
chapters 1 and 2, which allows the reader to quickly start empirical work.
* The foundation offered in the first two chapters makes the theoretical
econometric material, which begins in chapter 3, more accessible.
* Provides a good balance between econometric theory and empirical
* Discusses a wide range of models used by applied economists including many
variants of the regression model (with extensions for panel data), time series
models (including a discussion of unit roots and cointegration) and qualitative
choice models (probit and logit).
An extensive collection of web-based supplementary materials is provided for
this title, including: data sets, problem sheets with worked through answers,
empirical projects, sample exercises with answers, and slides for lecturers.
