This focus of this unit is to develop a student's understanding of regression analysis. The unit covers how linear regression models can be used to estimate relationships, to forecast, and to test hypotheses that arise in economics and business. Guidelines for using econometric techniques effectively are discussed and students are introduced to the process of model building. To develop a student's understanding of regression, economic applications are emphasised. This unit also makes extensive use of econometric software.Other than in exceptional circumstances, it is strongly recommended that students do not undertake Business and Economic Statistics B before attempting Business and Economic Statistics A.
