Reviews
A comprehensive introduction to the principles underlying statistical analyses in the fields of economics, business, and econometrics. The selection of topics is specifically designed to provide students with a substantial conceptual foundation, from which to achieve a thorough and mature understanding of statistical applications within the fields. After introducing the concepts of probability, random variables, and probability density functions, the author develops the key concepts of mathematical statistics, notably: expectation, sampling, asymptotics, and the main families of distributions. The latter half of the book is then devoted to the theories of estimation and hypothesis testing with associated examples and problems that indicate their wide applicability in economics and business. Includes hundreds of exercises and problems.
