Edition 3rd Edition
ISBN 9781137415462
Publication Date October 2015
Formats Paperback Ebook 
Publisher Palgrave

The third edition of Applied Econometrics builds on the success of the popular previous editions. It takes an intuitive, hands-on approach to presenting fundamental concepts in modern econometrics and carefully guides the reader through them.

Step-by-step instructions for all econometric tests and methods of estimation are provided, as well as ways in which to interpret the results. This makes it an ideal companion for students new to the subject, or for those requiring a 'refresher'.

Applied Econometrics third edition includes:
• Thorough updates of all material in the book
• More finance applications
• A brand new Chapter 20: Time Varying Coefficient Models: A new way of estimating bias free parameters

This is an indispensable textbook for undergraduate and Master's economics or finance students taking a course in applied econometrics.

Reviews

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, GermanyThe 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
