Introductory Econometrics is the only resource in the market designed specifically for introductory second-year students. The structure and explanations provide you with a clear introduction to the subject – understanding how econometrics can answer questions in business, policy evaluation and forecasting. The text includes material on introductory mathematics, probability and statistics, and provides you with opportunities to refine fundamental skills before you progress to more advanced topics. Data sets from Australia and New Zealand, as well as from the Asia-Pacific region add local context.
