# Applied Econometrics Using the SAS® System

• Published: July 2009
• 328 Pages
• John Wiley and Sons Ltd

The first cutting-edge guide to using the SAS® system for the analysis of econometric data

Applied Econometrics Using the SAS® System is the first book of its kind to treat the analysis of basic econometric data using SAS®, one of the most commonly used software tools among today's statisticians in business and industry. This book thoroughly examines econometric methods and discusses how data collected in economic studies can easily be analyzed using the SAS® system.

In addition to addressing the computational aspects of econometric data analysis, the author provides a statistical foundation by introducing the underlying theory behind each method before delving into the related SAS® routines. The book begins with a basic introduction to econometrics and the relationship between classical regression analysis models and econometric models. Subsequent chapters balance essential concepts with SAS® tools and cover key topics such as:

Regression analysis using Proc IML and Proc Reg

Hypothesis testing

Instrumental variables analysis, with a discussion of measurement errors, the assumptions incorporated into the analysis, and

Index

“The text serves as a relevant and valuable reference for practitioners in the fields of business, economics, and finance. In addition, most students of econometrics are taught using GAUSS and STATA, yet SAS is the standard in the working world; therefore, this book is an ideal supplement for upper-undergraduate and graduate courses in statistics, economics, and other social sciences since it prepares readers for real-world careers.” (Zentralblatt MATH, 2012)
