Objectives

**Advances in Econometrics** aims to annually publish original scholarly econometrics
papers on designated topics with the intention of expanding the use of developed and emerging econometric techniques
by disseminating ideas on the theory and practice of econometrics throughout the empirical economic, business and
social science literature.

Key Benefits

**Advances in Econometrics** is essential reading for academics, researchers and practitioners who are involved in applied
economic, business or social science research, and eager to keep up with the latest methodological tools. The series:

Disseminates new ideas in a style that is more extensive and self-contained than journal articles, with many papers including supplementary computer code and/or data driven examples illustrating the techniques.

Provides a collection of papers in each volume related to a central theme or idea, encompassing alternative approaches to implementation of the methodology.

Provides empirical applications that may be related to microeconomics, macroeconomics or finance, using cross-section data, time series data or panel data.

Key Audiences

**Advances in Econometrics** encourages academics, researchers and Ph.D. students to share their experience, knowledge,
and original research with an international audience. Contributors come from across the globe and researchers from all
areas are welcome to submit work for consideration in the series.

**Advances in Econometrics** is a series of research annuals first published in 1982. The founding co-editors of the series were Robert L. Basmann of Texas A&M University
and George F. Rhodes, Jr. of Colorado State University. Beginning in 1986 Thomas B. Fomby of Southern Methodist University became Senior Co-editor with Rhodes. In 1995,
R. Carter Hill of Louisiana State University joined Fomby as Senior Co-editor. In 2009, Ivan Jeliazkov of the University of California at Irvine joined Fomby and Hill as a
Senior Co-editor. In 2012, Juan Carlos Escanciano of Indiana University and Eric Hillebrand of Aarhus University joined as Senior Co-editors. In 2013, David Jacho-Chavez of
Emory University, Daniel Millimet of Southern Methodist University, and Rodney Strachan of University of Queensland joined as Senior Co-editors.
