This is a statistics text for students in the social sciences with detailed applications in both economics and political science. The book starts at an elementary level and progresses to a fairly advanced undergraduate and graduate level in econometrics. The first part of the book provides a self-contained exposition of statistical methods and econometrics. It includes an introduction to probability and distribution theory, regression analysis, the OLS and GLS models, as well as a discussion of Maximum Likelihood Estimation, Time Series Analysis, Consistency, and more. The second section applies the theory to econometric model building, and in particular discusses the problems of specification, estimation and hypothesis testing in a dynamic simultaneous equations framework. Finally, the third part focuses on Time Series Analysis and illustrates the techniques by analyzing the relationships between National Income and Money Supply on the one hand and Government Popularity and Macroeconomic Variables on the other.
