There are so many macroeconomic terms and moving parts in an economy that students and managers can easily get lost. An advantage of this book is that it simplifies macroeconomic analysis. Each of the preceding books in this series explained macroeconomic analysis for a different key measure such as GDP, inflation, interest rates, exports and exchange rates. The goal of this book is to examine where all five major macroeconomic measures are likely to go as a group and what they mean to business performance.

A hands-on macro tool called the consolidated-U.S. simulator is provided to analyze change from more than 15 different variables. Fiscal policy, monetary policy, currency exchange-rate policy, and export conditions for -both the EU and U.S. can be put in play at the same time. The combined effects of these movements on key macroeconomic outcomes provide the kinds of macroeconomic information over time that practitioners need to use in their important business analyses.

Business analyses, such as return on investment for foreign direct investment, and meeting or exceeding domestic and international sales targets, are only as good as the macroeconomic analyses they are based on. The default assumptions about inflation, GDP growth, exports and interest rates are that change will be constant or that no change will occur. Yet the analyses presented throughout this book series shows that macroeconomic systems are rarely unchanged and move cyclically.

The standard for excellence in macroeconomic analysis in the future is to engage businesses early on. The expected value of early analysis is that it has the potential to disrupt the development of economic crises. Imagine a world in which economic crises failed to materialize. In such an environment bubbles form but did not burst and the benefits of growth may be shared by more than just the wealthy. Join us in this cause.

This is intended to be a simple and accessible book on machine learning methods and their application in computational genomics and nanopore transduction detection. This book has arisen from eight years of teaching one-semester courses on various machine-learning, cheminformatics, and bioinformatics topics. The book begins with a description of ad hoc signal acquisition methods and how to orient on signal processing problems with the standard tools from information theory and signal analysis. A general stochastic sequential analysis (SSA) signal processing architecture is then described that implements Hidden Markov Model (HMM) methods. Methods are then shown for classification and clustering using generalized Support Vector Machines, for use with the SSA Protocol, or independent of that approach. Optimization metaheuristics are used for tuning over algorithmic parameters throughout. Hardware implementations and short code examples of the various methods are also described.

This new version of the bestselling Computer-Aided Multivariate Analysis has been appropriately renamed to better characterize the nature of the book. Taking into account novel multivariate analyses as well as new options for many standard methods, Practical Multivariate Analysis, Fifth Edition shows readers how to perform multivariate statistical analyses and understand the results. For each of the techniques presented in this edition, the authors use the most recent software versions available and discuss the most modern ways of performing the analysis.

New to the Fifth Edition

  • Chapter on regression of correlated outcomes resulting from clustered or longitudinal samples
  • Reorganization of the chapter on data analysis preparation to reflect current software packages
  • Use of R statistical software
  • Updated and reorganized references and summary tables
  • Additional end-of-chapter problems and data sets

The first part of the book provides examples of studies requiring multivariate analysis techniques; discusses characterizing data for analysis, computer programs, data entry, data management, data clean-up, missing values, and transformations; and presents a rough guide to assist in choosing the appropriate multivariate analysis. The second part examines outliers and diagnostics in simple linear regression and looks at how multiple linear regression is employed in practice and as a foundation for understanding a variety of concepts. The final part deals with the core of multivariate analysis, covering canonical correlation, discriminant, logistic regression, survival, principal components, factor, cluster, and log-linear analyses.

While the text focuses on the use of R, S-PLUS, SAS, SPSS, Stata, and STATISTICA, other software packages can also be used since the output of most standard statistical programs is explained. Data sets and code are available for download from the book’s web page and CRC Press Online.

The second edition of this acclaimed graduate text provides a unified treatment of two methods used in contemporary econometric research, cross section and data panel methods. By focusing on assumptions that can be given behavioral content, the book maintains an appropriate level of rigor while emphasizing intuitive thinking. The analysis covers both linear and nonlinear models, including models with dynamics and/or individual heterogeneity. In addition to general estimation frameworks (particular methods of moments and maximum likelihood), specific linear and nonlinear methods are covered in detail, including probit and logit models and their multivariate, Tobit models, models for count data, censored and missing data schemes, causal (or treatment) effects, and duration analysis.Econometric Analysis of Cross Section and Panel Data was the first graduate econometrics text to focus on microeconomic data structures, allowing assumptions to be separated into population and sampling assumptions. This second edition has been substantially updated and revised. Improvements include a broader class of models for missing data problems; more detailed treatment of cluster problems, an important topic for empirical researchers; expanded discussion of "generalized instrumental variables" (GIV) estimation; new coverage (based on the author's own recent research) of inverse probability weighting; a more complete framework for estimating treatment effects with panel data, and a firmly established link between econometric approaches to nonlinear panel data and the "generalized estimating equation" literature popular in statistics and other fields. New attention is given to explaining when particular econometric methods can be applied; the goal is not only to tell readers what does work, but why certain "obvious" procedures do not. The numerous included exercises, both theoretical and computer-based, allow the reader to extend methods covered in the text and discover new insights.
