Product Description

From the Publisher

Basic Econometrics retains its user-friendly approach to the major topics in econometrics. The discussion is technically correct and presents the state of the art. Anyone with a basic understanding of introductory statistics and college level mathematics will be able to understand the topics discussed in the text.
Data sets on disk included with book. The data disk contains all numerical data that are included in the chapters to illustrate various econometric techniques as well as the numerical data included in the Problem section of the end of chapter Exercises. All the data are in ASCII format and can be easily imported into statistical packages, such as Minitab, EVIEWS, SHAZAM, LIMDEP, RATS, SPSS, and STATA. This disk therefore allows the students to learn by doing; a critical part of learning econometrics
Eviews Student software CD that includes the data sets packaged with the text or sold separately.
All chapters have been substantially upgraded, with several new illustrative examples.
The topic of panel data, which is now used increasingly in applied research is now discussed in a new chapter. Panel data combines data from both cross-section and time series. A chapter now discusses ordinal, nominal and multinomial regression models, which are increasingly being used in research. A new chapter now discusses nonlinear in the parameter regression models. With readily available computer programs it is now easy to estimate such models.
The text contains 50 new data sets dealing with actual economic data drawn from both economics and other social sciences. These new data sets will keep the material fresh, and because they are drawn from actual sources, underscore the relevance of the material covered.
Extensive information about websites relating to economic data has been added. The Internet is an increasingly important tool in analyzing economic data, and this new feature aids students in doing econometric research via the Web. URL addresses will be cited wherever necessary.
Additional coverage of time series The two chapters on time series econometrics are rewritten to make them less technical. Also, several time series data are discussed in these chapters.

I used this book as a starting point for my econometrics courses for my MSc. I've never done econometrics and not much statistics before. It contains a surprising amount of detail and though can sometimes be a bit lacking in places (the more advanced topics which you probably wouldnt look for in an intro book like this anyway. so kudos for NOT covering them in detail!) its an excellent text. Highly recommended as a text book for beginners or as a reference to all and sundry.

This textbook comes with many "real" examples which allow readers to learn and realize the applications of econometric techniques. It also gives an introduction to panel data and time series methods which are very common in empirical works, but not covered by many introductory textbooks.

I used this book while I was a student of the Delhi School of Economics. This is the ideal book to start your studies of Econometrics. Infact, I would recommend reading this book before moving on to any area related to Econometrics.

Format: Paperback
This book could be very useful for students who don't have strong econometric knowledges but are interested in a complete (but superficial) overview of the main topics in econometrics. The simple and clear language used by the author and the number of example suggested represent the most important advanteges of this book. I wouldn't suggest this book to postgraduate students who are already familiar with classical linear model and estimatin's problems.

Gujarati succeeds in making this subject interesting, given the difficult nature of the subject. For the less mathematically minded among us (including myself), the algebra and proofs are simple to follow in the brilliant appendices.

Format: Paperback
This book is quite good for beginners in econometrics. It contains all the necessary beginner material, and more besides. However, it falls down on the fact that it fails to give precise explanations. It will explain something, then restate it, then restate it a different way and then another completely different way for good measure - this can be extremely confusing for novices.

Usually econometric terms and its implications should be not clear for people who haven't studied economics. This book saves to beginers students and people interested in economics, a lot of work on reading. We used this book, 3 years and have been a great helpful for my job, and teaching. All our universities uses Prof. Gujarati's book in courses of Econometrics
