Welcome to the Econometric Methods, Fourth Edition Home Page. My HTML skills are less than adequate, but I hope this page will serve at least three purposes:
After the various options a short description of the features of the book (written by McGraw-Hill) follows.
After a series of acquisitions McGraw-Hill's College Division is now McGraw-Hill Higher Education. Economics and related areas are now in Irwin McGraw-Hill
A classic text in the field, this new edition features a new co-author and provides a well-balanced and comprehensive study of current econometric theory and practice for undergraduate or graduate study. Traditional topics are carefully blended with newer techniques and trends. While the authors of this text assume students have taken a basic course in statistics, they provide a complete appendix on basic statistical theory for those who may need a refresher. In addition, the authors include in an appendix a review of all relevant topics in matrix algebra.
An innovative feature of this book is the detailed descriptions of several pieces of applied econometric research. These applications use real-life data contained on the data disk which accompanies the text, giving students a hands-on experience working with data sets. This book provides a compact, thirteen-chapter presentation. Coverage includes clear explanations of the derivation of econometric methods and practices. The authors then go on to show how, in practice, these methods apply to estimation and testing of economic models. Applications are built upon US economic data, all of which is contained on the data disk packaged with the text.
