Book Description

9 May 2005
This book provides the most comprehensive treatment to date of microeconometrics, the analysis of individual-level data on the economic behavior of individuals or firms using regression methods for cross section and panel data. The book is oriented to the practitioner. A basic understanding of the linear regression model with matrix algebra is assumed. The text can be used for a microeconometrics course, typically a second-year economics PhD course; for data-oriented applied microeconometrics field courses; and as a reference work for graduate students and applied researchers who wish to fill in gaps in their toolkit. Distinguishing features of the book include emphasis on nonlinear models and robust inference, simulation-based estimation, and problems of complex survey data. The book makes frequent use of numerical examples based on generated data to illustrate the key models and methods. More substantially, it systematically integrates into the text empirical illustrations based on seven large and exceptionally rich data sets.

Product Description


'This book presents an elegant and accessible treatment of the broad range of rapidly expanding topics currently being studied by microeconometricians. Thoughtful, intuitive, and careful in laying out central concepts of sophisticated econometric methodologies, it is not only an excellent textbook for students, but also an invaluable reference text for practitioners and researchers.' Cheng Hsiao, University of Southern California

'I wish Microeconometrics was available when I was a student! Here, in one place - and in clear and readable prose - you can find all of the tools that are necessary to do cutting-edge applied economic analysis, and with many helpful examples.' Alan Krueger, Princeton University

'Cameron and Trivedi have written a remarkably thorough and up-to-date treatment of microeconometric methods. This is not a superficial cookbook; the early chapters carefully lay the theoretical foundations on which the authors build their discussion of methods for discrete and limited dependent variables and for analysis of longitudinal data. A distinctive feature of the book is its attention to cutting-edge topics like semiparametric regression, bootstrap methods, simulation-based estimation, and empirical likelihood estimation. A highly valuable book.' Gary Solon, University of Michigan

'The empirical analysis of micro data is more widespread than ever before. The book by Cameron and Trivedi contains a superb treatment of all the methods that economists like to apply to such data. What is more, it fully integrates a number of exciting new methods that have become applicable due to recent advances in computer technology. The text is in perfect balance between econometric theory and empirical intuition, and it contains many insightful examples.' Gerard J. van den Berg, Free University, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

'… it is well organised and well written … the authors are to be congratulated on this sure-footed addition to the econometrics literature.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

Book Description

This book deals with methods and models of microeconometrics, the statistical modeling of behavioral relationships based on data from sample surveys or actual or quasi-social experiments. The book is oriented to the graduate student and researcher using such data. The level of the book is post-first year PhD economics.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 4 Mar 2011
By Safis
I think this book is "a must have" for for all those doing econometrics, both at theoretical and empirical mode. For students, its beyond saying that should invest on this book, it pays a lot. I am extremely satisfied.

I found also innovative the way that is organized, and the study guideline are really very effective to keep track of the theory.

I suggest to everyone interested to buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book for Empirical Economists 9 Feb 2006
By Sarah Hamersma - Published on Amazon.com
I am using this text to teach a first-year graduate course in econometrics (following a mathematical stats course) at the University of Florida. Myself and my students have been very happy with the intuitive approach of the book, and I have personally appreciated the good end-of-chapter problems that I can assign to my students. This is a GREAT addition to my library and should be on the shelf of any grad student who works with data.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Treatment of Microeconometrics 20 Nov 2005
By Econ Professor - Published on Amazon.com
This book will probably not supercede Wooldridge as the standard text for panel and cross-sectional econometrics. However, it will prove more useful for the student and practitioner as I think this book is more practical. There is extensive coverage of data and of techniques like bootstrapping, that you will not find in Wooldridge. The sheer volume of material presented should be sufficient to get you going in just about any area you will encounter in the field. I think that this book should be used in conjunction with Wooldridge and should be a part of your library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Microeconometrics 24 Mar 2007
By Michael Nimo - Published on Amazon.com
The book is useful for current line of microeconometric research. However, its presentation is similar to Greene (Econometrics Analysis). So if you are not comfortable with Green this text will not be best for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars An A-Z reference 11 Jan 2007
By Hossein Alikamar - Published on Amazon.com
If you want a book for microeconometrics such than whenever you need to look at a topic or subjects related to a topic, this is your book. If you need a very deep and comprehensive discussion about a topic, you need more than this. It may be not sufficient, but for sure it is a necessary book for anyone who does applied econometrics. I enjoy reading this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful textbook with a "small" problem 1 Feb 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a very useful "cookbook", which includes non only the standard parametric models (linear and nonlinear), but also basics of non-parametric and semi-parametric estimation. Also, foundations are laid out for important topics such as bootstrap, measurement error, program evaluation, clustering and stratification. These are all topics which turn out to be crucial for applied work, but which are usually left out of most/all textbooks. Overall, I am happy this book came out.

So, what's my problem with it? Well, I have only used a few sections, so far, but I have been quite surprised to notice that some sections are pretty much COPIED word by word from the corresponding (duly quoted) source. For instance, try to read the section on regression discontinuity, and compare those pages with the original article by W. Van der Klaauw. Or, the section on clustering and stratification is pretty much taken from Deaton's the Analysis of Household Surveys (a great book for applied economists, by the way, especially those interested in micro-development economics). The section on stratified sampling seems to be pretty much copied from Wooldridge's textbook on cross section and panel data (another highly recommended textbook).

I have not studied the whole book, but I suspect that other parts may suffer from the same problem. Every textbook will HAVE TO rely on countless sources, of course, but I still find a bit unsettling the fact that the authors didn't make any effort to re-elaborate or at least re-word whole paragraphs. This is quite unusual, and to me not acceptable. Still, this book feels like a very useful set of lecture notes on applied econometrics, and I would gladly give five stars for usefulness.
