Introduction to Econometrics

Fifth Edition

Christopher Dougherty

  • Provides substantial hands-on practical experience
  • Mathematical demands on the student are kept to a minimum
  • 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 a student study guide to help with revision; PowerPoint slides to aid lecture preparation; extensive datasets; an instructor's manual; and a guide to using software, support teaching and learning

New to this Edition:

  • All student examples and exercises have been updated with additional exercises included at the end of each chapter to maximise the opportunity for students to consolidate their learning.
  • The book has been made more accessible to students by the addition of an opening outline at the start of each chapter; making sure that key results feature clearly in the index; and ensuring that the relevance of equations is always included.
  • Further problem solving exercises have been added in line with feedback from reviewers that the text lacked these types of questions.
  • Mathematical content has been kept to a minimum with only core equations included so that students without a mathematics background are not overwhelmed. An additional review chapter has also been included offering readers who have not studied A level Mathematics a grounding in the basics of statistics.
  • In the latter chapters short sections have been included which introduce the meaning and application of more advanced topics. Further information sources have then been included to encourage able students to develop their learning independently.
