This introductory chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to provide a practical guide to understanding and applying the standard econometric tools that are used in labour economics. Emphasis is placed on both the input and the output of empirical analysis, rather than the understanding of the origins and properties of estimators and tests, topics which are more than adequately covered in recent textbooks on microeconometrics. The basic idea developed in this book is that linear regression is an important starting point for empirical analysis in labour economics.

Keywords:   labour economics, econometric tools, empirical analysis, linear regression
