A practical guide to selecting and applying the most appropriatemodel for analysis of cross section data using EViews. "This book is a reflection of the vast experience andknowledge of the author. It is a useful reference for students andpractitioners dealing with cross sectional data analysis ... Thestrength of the book lies in its wealth of material and wellstructured guidelines ..." Prof. Yohanes EkoRiyanto, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore "This is superb and brilliant. Prof. Agung has skilfullytransformed his best experiences into new knowledge ... creating anew way of understanding data analysis." Dr. I Putu Gede ArySuta, The Ary Suta Center, Jakarta Basic theoretical concepts of statistics as well as samplingmethods are often misinterpreted by students and less experiencedresearchers. This book addresses this issue by providing a hands-onpractical guide to conducting data analysis using EViews combinedwith a variety of illustrative models (and their extensions).Models having numerically dependent variables based on across-section data set (such as univariate, multivariate andnonlinear models as well as non-parametric regressions) areconcentrated on. It is shown that a wide variety of hypotheses caneasily be tested using EViews. Cross Section and Experimental Data Analysis UsingEViews: * Provides step-by-step directions on how to apply EViews tocross section data analysis - from multivariate analysis andnonlinear models to non-parametric regression * Presents a method to test for all possible hypotheses based oneach model * Proposes a new method for data analysis based on amultifactorial design model * Demonstrates that statistical summaries in the form oftabulations are invaluable inputs for strategic decisionmaking * Contains 200 examples with special notes and comments based onthe author's own empirical findings as well as over 400illustrative outputs of regressions from EViews * Techniques are illustrated through practical examples from realsituations * Comes with supplementary material, including work-filescontaining selected equation and system specifications that havebeen applied in the book This user-friendly introduction to EViews is ideal for Advancedundergraduate and graduate students taking finance, econometrics,population, or public policy courses, as well as applied policyresearchers.
