Introduction to Econometrics

Fourth Edition

Christopher Dougherty

  • A revision section at the start of the text ensures that all students are confident in basic statistics before embarking on the econometrics material, where mathematical demands on the student are kept to a minimum.
  • Provides substantial hands-on practical experience in the form of regression exercises, including 50 exercises on the same dataset.
  • A suite of useful online resources, such as extensive datasets, an instructor's manual and a guide to using software, support teaching and learning.

New to this Edition:

  • The review section at the start of the text has been expanded to provide an even more comprehensive revision guide for all the statistical concepts needed to study econometrics.
  • The free econometrics software application, gretl, has been incorporated into this edition so that students without access to commercial applications can carry out econometric analysis using software.
  • There are an increased number of exercises, providing students with even more opportunities to put the theory into practice.
  • The use of Monte Carlo simulations has been increased in this new edition (as have graphics in general) to illustrate the analysis and to help students understand the maths by visualising it.
  • A new final section has been added in each chapter to provide a summary of the chapter content and to introduce a brief non-technical overview of advanced topics.
