I really feel like, while accurate, the description on this page isn't helpful. Perhaps a plain english explanation, followed by 'more specifically, blah blah'. Editing accordingly Odoketa (talk) 03:53, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

About the "This article may be confusing or unclear to readers" warning[edit]

I was going through the Key Terms and Concepts in Chapter 17 of Econometric Analysis (Greene, 2011) by looking up each term in Wikipedia, and this is the most helpful article among the bunch. Maybe we should get rid of the warning. dbabbitt (talk) 12:51, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Dr. Ashenfelter's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Ashenfelter has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


I would say this is a pretty good entry, material for the non-technical reader and the more technical reader. The references to Wooldrige and Greene are standard, but I'm not familiar with the other two.


We hope Wikipedians on this talk page can take advantage of these comments and improve the quality of the article accordingly.

Dr. Ashenfelter has published scholarly research which seems to be relevant to this Wikipedia article:
