"This book presents an elegant and accessible treatment of the broad range
of rapidly expanding topics currently being studied by microeconometricians.
Thoughtful, intuitive, and careful in laying out central concepts of sophisticated
econometric methodologies, it is not only an excellent textbook for students,
but also an invaluable reference text for practitioners and researchers."
- Cheng Hsiao, University of Southern California
"I wish "Microeconometrics" was available when I was a student!
Here, in one place -- and in clear and readable prose -- you can find all
of the tools that are necessary to do cutting-edge applied economic analysis,
and with many helpful examples."
- Alan Krueger, Princeton University
"Cameron and Trivedi have written a remarkably thorough and up-to-date
treatment of microeconometric methods. This is not a superficial
cookbook; the early chapters carefully lay the theoretical foundations
on which the authors build their discussion of methods for discrete and
limited dependent variables and for analysis of longitudinal data.
A distinctive feature of the book is its attention to cutting-edge topics
like semiparametric regression, bootstrap methods, simulation-based estimation,
and empirical likelihood estimation. A highly valuable book."
- Gary Solon, University of Michigan
"The empirical analysis of micro data is more widespread than ever before.
The book by Cameron and Trivedi contains a superb treatment of all the
methods that economists like to apply to such data. What is more, it fully
integrates a number of exciting new methods that have become applicable
due to recent advances in computer technology. The text is in perfect balance
between econometric theory and empirical intuition, and it contains many
