Several procedures are proposed for testing the specification of an econometric model in the presence of one or more other models which purport to explain the same phenomenon.

These procedures are shown to be closely related, but not identical, to the nonnested hypothesis tests recently proposed by Pesaran and Deaton [7], and to have similar.

These models are employed commonly in determining the economic aspects of changes in government policies, regulatory conditions, interest rates, demographic.

Clusters and Metropolitan Economic Growth The first hypothesis tested is that regional industry clusters (levels of industrial specialization) are positively associated with metropolitan economic growth (aggregate employment growth, per capita income growth). Support for this hypothesis was modest at best and varied by type of industry.

BIBLIOGRAPHY. An econometric model is a set of equations de-signed to provide a quantitative explanation of the behavior of economic variables.

This article discusses models that focus on the behavior of an economy in the aggregate, especially on the time paths of variables such as national income and product, consumption, investment, employment, the price level. estimation and model specification of econometric models and apply these methods to macroeconomic and financial time series.

Turning to econometric forecasting we shift the focus of econometric modeling from fitting all available data, testing for statistical significance, and testing for correct specification towards fitting future data.

In this significant new volume, John Chipman, the eminence grise of econometrics, presents his classic lectures in econometric theory.

This framework guides the specification of an econometric model, which is described in the remaining sections. The second section describes the data base employed for estimation and the complex procedures needed to operationalize key variables in the model.

The third section gives the complete specification of the model.In sum: This book is half-way in between an introductory text (i.e. Wooldridge - Introductory Econometrics) and an advanced graduate textbook (Greene - Econometric Analysis).

Wooldridge's introductory textbook is certainly better suited for a first class in econometrics/5(11).
