Analysis of Economic Data teaches methods of data analysis to students whose primary interest is not in econometrics, statistics or mathematics. It shows students how to apply econometric techniques in the context of real-world empirical problems. Key features include: Adopts a largely non-mathematical approach relying on verbal and graphical intuitionCovers most of the tools and models used in modern econometrics research e.g. correlation, regression and extensions for time-series methodsContains extensive use of real data examples and involves readers in hands-on computer workA disk is packaged with the book containing all data sets included in the textProfessor Koop has done a wonderful job in explaining sophisticated statistical concepts ... to people with no statistical background. Kai Li, University of British Columbia The author has a real knack for getting the ideas across in a straightforward and intuitive manner ... Dr Koop possesses immense technical ability along with a down-to-earth willingess to entertain a student's perspective. Craig Heinicke, Baldwin Wallace College
