The intuitive approach of Introduction to Econometrics uses interesting applications to motivate theory and theory to match the applications. Students come away with a thorough understanding of econometrics and of the relationships on which people, businesses, and governments base their decisions. Theory is closely matched to the applications--illuminating the vitality and relevance of econometrics, and the choice of topics--including an introduction to program evaluation; panel data methods; instrumental variables regression; and regression with time series data--reflects the best of contemporary applied econometrics. This text is designed for the Introductory Econometrics course. The goal of Introduction to Econometrics is to provide the most modern treatment of econometrics available, using theory and applications that match real-world theory and data.
