Text

We will use Introductory Econometrics: A Modern
Approach, by Jeffrey M. Wooldridge. The most recent edition is the 5th^{th}, but earlier editions are
acceptable substitutes. There will be several copies on reserve at Moffitt
Library. Reserve call numbers will be posted here when they are
available.

Software

Problem sets will require you to use a data analysis and statistical software
program called Stata. We will begin using Stata in a tutorial during the
second week of class. If you want to purchase your own copy of
the software for your laptop or home computer, a single-user six-month license
for Small Stata (sufficient
for this course) is available through Berkeley’s GradPlan
for $35. (An annual license is $49.) Note that a license allows you to
install the software on up to three of your own computers. See
http://www.stata.com/order/schoollist.html
to purchase (Select University of California, Berkeley, then
look for the product you want). Software is delivered to campus for pick-up
after your online purchase.** There are often delays in delivering copies of
Stata at the beginning of the semester, so if you are sure that you will take
this class you should order a copy ASAP to ensure you receive it on time.**
