Econometrics can be a fun course for both teacher and student. The real world of economics, business, and government is a complicated and messy place. full of competing ideas and questions that demand answers. Is it more effective to tackle drunk driving by passing tough laws or by increasing the tax on alcohol? Can you make money in the stock market by buying when prices are historically low, relative to earnings. or should you just sit tight as the random walk theory of stock prices suggests? Can we improve elementary education by reducing class sizes. or should we simply have our children listen to Mozart for tcn minutes a day? Econometrics helps us to sort out sound ideas from crazy ones and to find quantitative answers to important quantitative questions. Econometrics opens a window on our complicated world that lets us see the relationships on which people. businesses, and governments base their decisions. This textbook is designed for a first course in undergraduate econometrics. It is our experience that to make econometrics relevant in an introductory course, interesting applications must motivate the theory and the theory must match the applications. TIlis simple principle represents a significant departure from the older generation of econometrics books, in which theoretical models and assumptions do not match the applications. It is no wonder that some students question the relevance of econometrics after they spend much of their time learning assumptions that they subsequently realize are unrealistic, so that they must then learn "solutions" to "problems" that arise when the applications do not match the assumptions. We believe that it is far better to motivate the need for tools with a concrete application, and thell to provide a few simple assumptions that match the application. Because the theory is immediately relevant to tbe applications, this approach can make econometrics come alive. TIle second edition benefits from the many constructive suggestions of teachers who used the first edition, while maintaining the philosophy tbat applications should drive the theory, not the other way around. The single greatest change in the second edition is a reorganization and expansion of the material on core regression analysis: Part II,which covers regression with cross-sectional data, has been expanded from four chapters to six. We have added new empirical examples (as boxes) drawn from economics and finance; some new optional sections on

Introduction to Econometrics has been significantly revised to include new developments in the field. The previous editions of this text were renowned for Maddala's clear exposition and the presentation of concepts in an easily accessible manner. Features: * New chapters have been included on panel data analysis, large sample inference and small sample inference * Chapter 14 Unit Roots and Cointegration has been rewritten to reflect recent developments in the Dickey-Fuller (DF), the Augmented Dickey-Fuller (ADF) tests and the Johansen procedure * A selection of data sets and the instructor's manual for the book can be found on our web site Comments on the previous edition: 'Maddala is an outstanding econometrician who has a deep understaning of the use and potential abuse of econometrics...' 'The strengths of the Maddala book are its simplicity, its accessibility and the large number of examples the book contains...' 'The second edition is well written and the chapters are focused and easy to follow from beginning to end. Maddala has an oustanding grasp of the issues, and the level of mathematics and statistics is appropriate as well.'

Introduction to Econometrics has been written as a core textbook for a first course in econometrics taken by undergraduate or graduate students. It is intended for students taking a single course in econometrics with a view towards doing practical data work. It will also be highly useful for students interested in understanding the basics of econometric theory with a view towards future study of advanced econometrics. To achieve this end, it has a practical emphasis, showing how a wide variety of models can be used with the types of data sets commonly used by economists. However, it also has enough discussion of the underlying econometric theory to give the student a knowledge of the statistical tools used in advanced econometrics courses. Key Features: * A non-technical summary of the basic tools of econometrics is given in chapters 1 and 2, which allows the reader to quickly start empirical work. * The foundation offered in the first two chapters makes the theoretical econometric material, which begins in chapter 3, more accessible. * Provides a good balance between econometric theory and empirical applications. * Discusses a wide range of models used by applied economists including many variants of the regression model (with extensions for panel data), time series models (including a discussion of unit roots and cointegration) and qualitative choice models (probit and logit). An extensive collection of web-based supplementary materials is provided for this title, including: data sets, problem sheets with worked through answers, empirical projects, sample exercises with answers, and slides for lecturers.
