Gujarati and Porter’s Basic Econometrics provides an elementary but comprehensive introduction to econometrics without resorting to matrix algebra, calculus, or statistics beyond the elementary level. With the addition of over 100 new data sets, as well as significantly updated research and examples, the Fifth Edition responds to important developments in the theory and practice of econometrics. Basic Econometrics is widely used by students of all fields as the expanded topics and concrete applications throughout the text apply to a broad range of studies.
