## Econometric analysisFor graduate-level courses in Introduction to Econometrics. A standard text/reference in courses that include basic techniques in regression analysis and extensions used when linear models prove inadequate or inappropriate. Areas of application include Economics, Sociology, Political Science, Medical Research, Transport Research, and Environmental Economics. This book introduces students to the broad field of applied econometrics. An effective bridge to both on-the-job problems and to the professional literature, it features extensive applications and presents sufficient theoretical background to enable students to recognize new variants of the models that they learn about here as merely natural extensions that fit within a common body of principles. |
