The authors have cleverly used exercises and their solutions to explore the concepts of multivariate data analysis. Broken down into three sections, this book has been structured to allow students in economics and finance to work their way through a well formulated exploration of this core topic. The first part of this book is devoted to graphical techniques. The second deals with multivariate random variables and presents the derivation of estimators and tests for various practical situations. The final section contains a wide variety of exercises in applied multivariate data analysis.
