About the Book :
Introduction to Econometrics has been significantly revised to include new developments in the field. The book contains new chapters on panel data analysis, large sample inference and small sample inference. It also has a separate chapter on Unit Roots and Co integration which reflects recent developments in the Dickey-Fuller (DF), the Augmented Dickey-Fuller (ADF) tests and the Johansen procedure.
