Introductory Econometrics with Applications offers an ideal combination of econometric theory and hands-on practical training for undergraduate and graduate courses.
The authorAEs ambition is to provide realistic applications without sacrificing theoretical underpinnings. He uses a logical step-by-step approach to walk students through numerous real-world examples of model Introductory Econometrics with Applications offers an ideal combination of econometric theory and hands-on practical training for undergraduate and graduate courses.
He uses a logical step-by-step approach to walk students through numerous real-world examples of model specification, estimation, and hypothesis testing. The book also succeeds at being self-contained. By including background information on mathematics, probability, statistics, and software applications, students have all the information they need in one place. Get A Copy. Hardcover , pages.

Jun 03, Louis rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Learning statistics and econometrics, including full versions of software. Shelves: math-stats. I've been realizing that most of the data I work with are observational as opposed to the experimental data that most statistics that I know are designed for.
So I've been working through this econometrics text. By way of background, I've taken Statistics as undergrad using books and tables, as a master's, which was essentially using SAS, and as a grad student, in a very mathematical sense. Working through Intro. Econometrics with Applications was learning what all the math based stats in grad s I've been realizing that most of the data I work with are observational as opposed to the experimental data that most statistics that I know are designed for.
Econometrics with Applications was learning what all the math based stats in grad school, but actually understanding it. And the computer package Gretl makes the learning interactive. Ramanathan's biggest strength is he does not stop at teaching definitions, formula and methods. And his example applications do not stop at working through methodology. He uses the computer output to build intuition, asking the question of why this variable is what it is, or why two models are different.
The use of Gretl enhances this. The scripts and data sets make it easy to see the examples at work, but also make it very easy to explore.
I found myself running the scripts, then exploring the data sets in Gretl to further analysis, and building my understanding. The mathematical derivations are there, but having both the theory and the computer outputs for discussion make for a good match.
The book datasets and examples are bundled into the econometrics package Gretl, which is an open source program available for Windows, Mac, Linux. And more flexible then the menu based packages like Minitab or Excel based statistical packages.
Great for programming, but harder for exploring data to the neophyte. I think that texts like this that are integrated with a full fledged statistics package as opposed to purely math or a demo version make the learning and applying of statistics different. The chapter summaries become short forms of methodology as opposed to formula with the assumptions that the various methods repeated as well.
I found this to be a particularly effective format for a first book on a subject assumes a first sequence in undergrad statistics has been completed. As of now, I've gone through 5 chapters of the book, working through the examples. As I do this, I am learning a lot about analysis, that is going to inform a project I am starting up. That is probably the best testimony for a book of this type. Feb 07, Abdullah Alawadhi rated it really liked it. Very good book for the basics of econometrics.
