Model Reliability

Edited by David Belsley and Edwin Kuh

Overview

This book addresses an often neglected aspect of econometrics, the question of how to assess the specification, strengths, weaknesses, limits, and sensitive features of a model. The contributions are the result of a five-year inter-university research project to improve understanding of concepts of model reliability.Contents: Introduction, David A. Belsley and Edwin Kuh.
