About the Author

Peter Kennedy is Professor of Economics at Simon Fraser University. In addition to A Guide to Econometrics, he is author of Macroeconomic Essentials: Understanding Economics in the News, 2e (2000), and is Associate Editor of the International Journal of Forecasting, the Journal of Economic Education, and Economics Bulletin.


?The exceptional success of this work is due to its clarity and economy of expression and the accessibility of the subject matter to a broad range of scholars. Now in its sixth edition, this guide brings practitioners and researchers up to date on the popular techniques in estimation. It holds a unique position among econometric texts. Highly recommended.? (Choice, November 2008)
