This book is an introductory text on analyzing economic data, covering all the key issues required for students wishing to understand and analyse core empirical issues in economics. It focuses on descriptive statistics, probability concepts and basic econometrics and uses many relevant and contemporary economic examples to illustrate these techniques. The book has an accompanying website that contains all the data used in the examples and also provides Econometric Views exercises for both replicating the examples and undertaking original research. It is thus an essential text for both those being confronted with economic data analysis for the first time and those undertaking their first research projects in economics.

Terence Mills is Professor of Applied Statistics and Econometrics at Loughborough University, UK.
