Suppose an econometrician
could conduct a large number of repeated trials for each value of the true probability.
Economists beyond a certain age will likely recall an era that is sometimes called the "unit root wars." During the 1980s and 1990s there were heated debates among economists about whether macroeconomic time series were "trend stationary" or "difference stationary." Econometricians
designed ever more esoteric procedures to test these hypotheses.
Worswick (1972) claimed that econometricians
are not engaged in forging tools to arrange and measure actual facts but are making a marvelous array of pretend-tools.
A Bayesian econometrician
then finds it often convenient to report moments of the posterior as estimation results.
In each market m = 1, ..., M, the econometrician
observes a vector of covariates x which is the realization of some random vector X with support X.
(10) Some of them emphasize the detailed mechanism of econometric procedures and aim to train the next generation of econometricians
. It is called specialist education.
I was not fond of the dry tools of linear algebra used by Fisher and other econometricians
to study identification of simultaneous linear systems.

and law professor at Yale.
Ayers, an econometrician
and a lawyer, makes a case that may revolutionize that mind-set.
(4.) In general, before starting the analysis, the econometrician
will combine prior information about the distribution of the unknown parameters, called the prior distribution and denoted by p([theta]), with the "likelihood" of observing the data, given values for the parameters and the unobserved factor.
Abstract The improvement of data statistics as well as the econometrician
methods have facilitated the introduction the new variables and factors I the economic growth analysis.
The book is the culmination of 25 years of research by Victor Tremblay, who has studied demand analysis, the effects of advertising and corporate strategies of the brewing industry, and his wife, Carol Horton Tremblay, an applied econometrician
. "The brewing industry has gone through what many other industries have experienced," said Victor Tremblay.
