This study introduces students to applied econometrics, including basic techniques in regression analysis. Key topics in this text include self-contained summaries of the matrix algebra, statistical theory and mathematical statistics used in the book. The book covers Estimator, ML, GMM, and 2 step; panel data, heteroscedasticity, qualitative responsive models, and limited dependant variables. It emphasizes nonlinear models. Topics such as GMM estimation methods, Lagrange multiplier tests and time series analysis are also covered.
