Applied Econometrics / Edition 2 available in Paperback
This textbook offers a unique blend of theory and practical application. Taking students from a basic level up to an advanced understanding in an intuitive, step-by-step fashion, it provides perfect preparation for doing applied econometric work. Economic tests and methods of estimation are presented clearly, and practical guidance on using several types of software packages is given. Real world data is used throughout and emphasis is given to the interpretation of the results, and the conclusions to be drawn from them in econometric work.
This book will be core reading for undergraduate and Master’s students on an Economics or Finance degree, who take a course in applied econometrics. Its practical nature makes it perfect for modules requiring a research project.

What People are Saying About This
This book, for me, strikes a perfect balance between theoretical discussion and practical application, which is vital for anyone learning econometrics.' - Kavita Sirichand, Loughborough University, School of Business and Economics, UK
'Applications oriented, with the support of several computer packages'. - Reinhard Neck, Department of Economics, University of Klagenfurt, Germany
The book meets virtually all the needs of a Master's graduate course. It provides step-by-step guidance on how to apply a wide range of econometric techniques from simple regression models to relatively sophisticate time-series and panel data models to real world data. Literally, it is application-oriented without loss of necessary theoretical justifications.' - Chunming Yuan, Department of Economics, University of Maryland, US
