Introduction to Econometrics is designed for a first course in undergraduate econometrics. It differs from other textbooks in three main ways. First, it integrates real-world questions and data into the development of the theory. Second, choice of topics reflects modern theory and practice. Third, theory and assumptions that are provided match the applications. Aim of this text is to teach students to become sophisticated consumers of econometrics and to do so at a level of mathematics appropriate for an introductory course.

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.
