For courses in Introductory Econometrics Engaging applications bring the theory and practice of modern econometrics to life Ensure students grasp the relevance of econometrics with Introduction to Econometrics-the text that connects modern theory and practice with motivating, engaging applications. The Third Edition Update maintains a focus on currency, while building on the philosophy that applications should drive the theory, not the other way around. This program provides a better teaching and learning experience-for you and your students. Here's how: * Keeping it current with new and updated discussions on topics of particular interest to today's students. * Presenting consistency through theory that matches application. * Offering a full array of pedagogical features.
