Comment from the Stata technical group

The seventh 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 a few extensions to handle the special cases commonly encountered in econometric data. In addition to chapters on OLS, he includes chapters on current techniques of estimation and inference for time-series data, panel data, limited dependent variables, and sample selection.

In his treatments of OLS and two-stage least squares, Wooldridge breaks new ground by concentrating on advanced statistical concepts instead of matrix algebra. A traditional approach to introductory econometrics would use advanced sections to explain matrix algebra and its applications in econometrics. In contrast, Wooldridge uses the advanced sections of his text to introduce recently developed statistical concepts and techniques. This approach leads to a text with greater breadth than is usual in books of this type. This book is equally useful for advanced undergraduate study, as the basis of a survey course at the graduate level, or as a conceptual supplement to advanced courses.

The seventh edition introduces discrete covariates and the modern potential- outcome approach to causal inference earlier and more accessibly in the new sections 2.7, 3.7, and 4.7 and in the improved section 7.6. The new subsections 13.2(a) and 13.2(b) clearly explain the difference-in-differences approach to causal inference. The result is that an excellent introductory book has been made even better.
