"The most important strength of this text is its close connection (in terms of both style/structure and content) to the way empirical research is actually conducted. In particular, the emphasis on whether or not an estimated relationship can be considered causal is central to econometric practice today, and this book, unlike many others, makes that clear. The book is very comprehensive, with a wide range of topics that other introductory econometrics books do not always include but that are very common in research (e.g. panel data)."From the Publisher:
Practical and professional, this text bridges the gap between how undergraduate econometrics has traditionally been taught and how empirical researchers actually think about and apply econometric methods. The text's unique approach reflects how econometric instruction has evolved from simply describing a set of abstract recipes to showing how econometrics can be used to empirically study questions across a variety of disciplines. The systematic approach, where assumptions are introduced only as they are needed to obtain a certain result, makes the material easier for students, and leads to better econometric practice. It is organised around the type of data being analysed - an approach that simplifies the exposition and allows a more careful discussion of assumptions. Packed with relevant applications and a wealth of interesting data sets, the text emphasises examples that have implications for policy or provide evidence for or against economic theories.
