Introduction to Econometrics, Student Value Edition, 4th edition

  • James H. Stock
  • Mark W. Watson

Overview

Ensure students grasp the relevance of econometrics with Introduction to Econometrics — the text that connects modern theory and practice with motivating, engaging applications. The 4th Edition maintains a focus on currency, while building on the philosophy that applications should drive the theory, not the other way around. Authors Stock and Watson incorporateY real-world questions and data, and methods that are immediately relevant to the applications. With very large data sets increasingly being used in economics and related fields, a new chapter dedicated to Big Data helps students learn about this growing and exciting area. This coverage and approach make the subject come alive for students and helps them to become sophisticated consumers of econometrics.
