Introductory Econometrics: A Modern Approach, Sixth Edition
|Author:||Jeffrey M. Wooldridge|
The sixth edition of Jeffrey Wooldridge's textbook, Introductory Econometrics: A Modern Approach, lives up to its subtitle in its choice of topics and its treatment of standard material.
Wooldridge recognizes that modern econometrics involves much more than ordinary least squares (OLS) with extensions for autocorrelation, heteroskedasticity, and such. He does cover OLS in detail, but does so within the larger context of current techniques of estimation and inference for time-series data, panel data, limited dependent variables, and sample selection.
