Getting accurate data on less developed countries has created great problems for studying these areas. Yet until recently students of development economics have relied on standard econometrics texts, which assume a Western context. Econometrics and Data Analysis for Developing Countries solves this problem. It will be essential reading for all advanced students of development economics.
