Real Stats

Using Econometrics for Political Science and Public Policy

Michael A. Bailey

  • A lively and engaging narrative presents complicated topics in an informal and fun yet authoritative tone
  • A focus on statistics actually used by real analysts enables students to explore meaningful analysis much earlier than in other texts
  • A single unified framework, centered on the standard regression model, allows the narrative to build logically from one concept to the next
  • Examples and case studies demonstrate the application of statistical tools in concrete ways
  • "Remember This" boxes at the end of each section summarize key points to help students keep track of the material that they just learned
  • A guide to computing at the end of every chapter with sample code for Stata and R
  • A wide variety of exercises for each chapter--a total of 58 problems with 43 different data sets--give students multiple opportunities to analyze real data sets on interesting topics
