"This book is a reflection of the vast experience and knowledge of the author. It is a useful reference for students and practitioners dealing with cross sectional data analysis ... The strength of the book lies in its wealth of material and well structured guidelines ..." Prof. Yohanes Eko Riyanto, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
"This is superb and brilliant. Prof. Agung has skilfully transformed his best experiences into new knowledge ... creating a new way of understanding data analysis." Dr. I Putu Gede Ary Suta, The Ary Suta Center, Jakarta
Basic theoretical concepts of statistics as well as sampling methods are often misinterpreted by students and less experienced researchers. This book addresses this issue by providing a hands-on practical guide to conducting data analysis using EViews combined with a variety of illustrative models (and their extensions). Models having numerically dependent variables based on a cross-section data set (such as univariate, multivariate and nonlinear models as well as non-parametric regressions) are concentrated on. It is shown that a wide variety of hypotheses can easily be tested using EViews.
Cross Section and Experimental Data Analysis Using EViews:
This user-friendly introduction to EViews is ideal for Advanced undergraduate and graduate students taking finance, econometrics, population, or public policy courses, as well as applied policy researchers.

He has been teaching mathematical statistics and applied statistics since 1960 at the Makassar Public University as well as Hassanudin University, Makassar, since 1987 at the Faculty of Economics, University of Indonesia, and since 2006 at the Graduate School of Planning, Strategy and Public Policy, University of Indonesia. Areas of interest include population studies, education, public health, economics, management and finance. Agung has authored one applied statistics textbook in English and more than 10 pocket books in Indonesian. He holds a BSc in Mathematical Education from Hassanudin University, a Masters in Mathematics from the New Mexico State University and a second Masters in mathematical statistics as well as a PhD in biostatistics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
This book explores the use of EViews software in creating panel data analysis using appropriate empirical models and real datasets. Guidance is given on developing alternative descriptive statistical summaries for evaluation and providing policy analysis based on pool panel data. Various alternative models based on panel data are explored, including univariate general linear models, fixed effect models and causal models, and guidance on the advantages and disadvantages of each one is given.
Panel Data Analysis using EViews:Provides step-by-step guidance on how to apply EViews software to panel data analysis using appropriate empirical models and real datasets. Examines a variety of panel data models along with the author’s own empirical findings, demonstrating the advantages and limitations of each model. Presents growth models, time-related effects models, and polynomial models, in addition to the models which are commonly applied for panel data. Includes more than 250 examples divided into three groups of models (stacked, unstacked, and structured panel data), together with notes and comments. Provides guidance on which models not to use in a given scenario, along with advice on viable alternatives. Explores recent new developments in panel data analysis
An essential tool for advanced undergraduate or graduate students and applied researchers in finance, econometrics and population studies. Statisticians and data analysts involved with data collected over long time periods will also find this book a useful resource.
This book provides a hands-on practical guide to using the most suitable models for analysis of statistical data sets using EViews - an interactive Windows-based computer software program for sophisticated data analysis, regression, and forecasting - to define and test statistical hypotheses. Rich in examples and with an emphasis on how to develop acceptable statistical models, Time Series Data Analysis Using EViews is a perfect complement to theoretical books presenting statistical or econometric models for time series data. The procedures introduced are easily extendible to cross-section data sets.
The author:Provides step-by-step directions on how to apply EViews software to time series data analysis Offers guidance on how to develop and evaluate alternative empirical models, permitting the most appropriate to be selected without the need for computational formulae Examines a variety of times series models, including continuous growth, discontinuous growth, seemingly causal, regression, ARCH, and GARCH as well as a general form of nonlinear time series and nonparametric models Gives over 250 illustrative examples and notes based on the author's own empirical findings, allowing the advantages and limitations of each model to be understood Describes the theory behind the models in comprehensive appendices Provides supplementary information and data sets
An essential tool for advanced undergraduate and graduate students taking finance or econometrics courses. Statistics, life sciences, and social science students, as well as applied researchers, will also find this book an invaluable resource.
The Essentials For Dummies Series
Dummies is proud to present our new series, The Essentials For Dummies. Now students who are prepping for exams, preparing to study new material, or who just need a refresher can have a concise, easy-to-understand review guide that covers an entire course by concentrating solely on the most important concepts. From algebra and chemistry to grammar and Spanish, our expert authors focus on the skills students most need to succeed in a subject.
Two of the authors co-wrote The Elements of Statistical Learning (Hastie, Tibshirani and Friedman, 2nd edition 2009), a popular reference book for statistics and machine learning researchers. An Introduction to Statistical Learning covers many of the same topics, but at a level accessible to a much broader audience. This book is targeted at statisticians and non-statisticians alike who wish to use cutting-edge statistical learning techniques to analyze their data. The text assumes only a previous course in linear regression and no knowledge of matrix algebra.
