EViews Illustrated is dedicated to my students of many years, especially those who thrive on organized chaos—and even more to those who don’t like chaos at all but who nonetheless manage to learn a lot and have fun anyway. Acknowledgements First off, I’d like to thank the entire EViews crew at IHS EViews for their many suggestions— and you’d like to thank them for their careful review of the manuscript of this book. Next, thank you to David for letting me kibitz over the decades as he’s built EViews into the leading econometric software package. Related thanks to Carolyn for letting me absorb much of David’s time, and even more for sharing some of her time with me. Most of all, I'd like to thank my 21-year-old editor/daughter Meredith. She's the world's best editor, and her editing is the least important contribution that she makes to my life.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
