Fundamentals of Econometrics


SKU: 168865ebba46 Category:

Econometrics provides a very useful toolbox to researchers in economics, business and management. It also helps in verifying theory, estimating relationshps, prediction, forecasting and project analysis. The present book aims at equipping the students, analysts, researchers and planners with all the requisite methods and tools to the uninitiated. The basics of matrix algebra and statistical concept and methods are introduced first. All the tools of econometrics are first introduced in most elementary form-the two variable model-without the use of matrix algebra. However, ultimately, the most general methods are developed using matrices. A large number of solved exercises have been added.
