Arthur Goldberger’s new book sets a standard for undergraduate textbooks in econometrics.—Guido Imbens, Harvard University

Arthur Goldberger has written an excellent introduction to econometrics, in particular the empirical orientation of the book teaches econometric students about good econometric practice.—Herman K. van Dijk, Erasmus University, Rotterdam

Highlighting the final stage of a most distinguished career in econometrics, Professor Goldberger has produced the ultimate introductory text. Exploiting his impressive writing talents, he presents the essence of econometrics in an extremely lucid way, stressing relevance and interpretation using a minimum of technical detail.—Tom Wansbeek, University of Groningen

Introductory Econometrics carefully and clearly presents the essential materials of the classical linear regression model without the confusing and unnecessary discussions that fill many of the existing undergraduate econometric textbooks. The text is precise, intuitive, and well-written, with the key ideas and methods building on each other throughout. The book should be accessible and challenging to a wide range of undergraduates.—John Pepper, University of Virginia
