Demonstrate how empirical researchers apply econometric methods to answer questions across a variety of disciplines. The practical, professional approach in Wooldridge's INTRODUCTORY ECONOMETRICS: A MODERN APPROACH, 6E is organized around the type of data being analyzed, using a systematic approach that introduces assumptions only when needed to obtain a certain result. This approach is easier for students to comprehend. Timely applications and examples demonstrate impact on policy and support or disprove economic theories. More than 100 data sets are available in six formats for your flexibility. New and revised author-written resources include an Instructor's Manual with Solutions, teaching tips, suggestions for using data files, updated PowerPoint® and Scientific Word® slides, and a current Data Set Handbook with the latest developments. Give students a full understanding of how econometrics answers questions in business, policy evaluation, and forecasting with INTRODUCTORY ECONOMETRICS: A MODERN APPROACH, 6E.
