N2 - "This important new textbook written especially for Indian students, researchers, and teachers comprehensively covers both the theory and the applications aspects of econometrics. It presents a balanced approach to the subject in which the 'how' and 'why' - techniques and programmes as well as empirical illustrations - share an equal emphasis. Developed as a self-contained text and assumes only a basic knowledge of algebra and calculus."--Jacket
