About this product
- DescriptionAs conceived by the founders of the Ecometric Society, ecometrics is a field that uses ecomic theory and statistical methods to address empirical problems in ecomics. 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 t shared by those who view ecometrics as a branch of statistics rather than as a distinct field of kwledge 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 6B offer guidance to the practitioner on how to apply the methods they discuss to interpret ecomic data. The authors of the chapters are all leading scholars in the fields they survey and extend.
