Practical and professional, Wooldridge's INTRODUCTORY ECONOMETRICS: A MODERN APPROACH, 4e bridges the gap between how undergraduate econometrics has traditionally been taught and how empirical researchers actually think about and apply econometric methods. The text's unique approach reflects the fact that econometrics has moved from a specialized mathematical description of economics to an applied interpretation based on empirical research techniques. The text combines the mechanics of econometrics with modern applications of econometrics by employing a systematic approach motivated by the major problems facing applied researchers today. Unlike traditional texts, INTRODUCTORY ECONOMETRICS's unique organization separates topics by the kinds of data being analyzed, rather than presenting a strictly linear model. Packed with relevant applications and a wealth of interesting data sets, the text emphasizes examples throughout, which gives a concrete reality to economic relationships, as well as allows treatment of intriguing policy questions in a realistic and accessible framework.

Author Bio

Jeffrey M. Wooldridge is a University Distinguished Professor of Economics at Michigan State University, where he has taught since 1991. From 1986 to 1991, he served as Assistant Professor of Economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Wooldridge has published more than three dozen articles in internationally recognized journals, as well as several book chapters. He is also the author of ECONOMETRIC ANALYSIS OF CROSS SECTION AND PANEL DATA. His work has earned numerous awards, including the Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship, the Multa Scripsit award from Econometric Theory, the Sir Richard Stone prize from the Journal of Applied Econometrics, and three graduate teacher-of-the-year awards from MIT. A fellow of the Econometric Society and of the Journal of Econometrics, Dr. Wooldridge has been editor of the Journal of Business and Economic Statistics and econometrics co-editor of Economics Letters. He has also served on the editorial boards of the Journal of Econometrics and the Review of Economics and Statistics. Dr. Wooldridge received his B.A. with majors in computer science and economics from the University of California, Berkeley, and received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of California, San Diego.
