Series: Handbooks in Economics

The Handbooks in Economics series provides the various branches of economics with definitive reference sources, suitable for use by professional researchers, advanced graduate students, or by those seeking a teaching supplement. With contributions from leading researchers in the field, each volume presents an authoritative, self-contained survey of the topic under examination. With over 110 volumes in the collection, the handbooks are more highly cited than any other economics journal. They have an active shelf life and volumes remain significant in today's environment. A number of our editors and contributors are recipients of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, including founding series editor Kenneth Arrow and 2013 winners Lars Peter Hansen and Robert J. Shiller.

Volume 2. Handbook of Econometrics

Published: 14th December 2007 Editors: James Heckman Edward Leamer
As conceived by the founders of the Econometric Society, econometrics is a field that uses economic theory and statistical methods to address empirical problems in economics. It is a tool for empirical discovery and policy analysis. The chapters in this volume embody this vision and either implement it directly or provide the tools for doing so. This vision is not shared by those who view econometrics as a branch of statistics rather than as a distinct field of knowledge that designs methods of inference from data based on models of human choice behavior and social interactions. All of the essays in this volume and its companion volume 6A offer guidance to the practitioner on how to apply the methods they discuss to interpret economic data. The authors of the chapters are all leading scholars in the fields they survey and extend. Handbook of Econometrics is now available online at ScienceDirect — full-text online from volume 1 onwards.
