Estimation and Inference in Econometrics 

$82.50 each Buy 




Comment from the Stata technical groupEstimation and Inference in Econometrics is a book that every serious student of econometrics should keep within arm’s reach. Davidson and MacKinnon provide a rather atypical insight into the theory and practice of econometrics. By itself, their exposition of the many uses of artificial regressions makes the book a valuable addition to any econometrician’s library. Suitable for graduate courses in econometrics, advanced selfstudy, or as a desk reference, this book receives our highest recommendation.
