EA/LimDep is a computer program that you can use
for nearly all the computations described in Econometric Analysis. It is
a small part of a large commercial package, LIMDEP (for LIMited DEPendent
variable modeling), that is used by researchers in universities, government,
and industry for the same kinds of analyses done in this text.
There are three differences between EA/LimDep and
The sizes of data sets that you can analyze are restricted
to 500,000 values with up to 100 variables and up to 5,000 observations.
LIMDEP's very specialized procedures, such as the nested
logit model and advanced extensions of the Poisson regression model are
not available in EA/LimDep. (You will be able to do all of the computations
described in Econometric Analysis save for the more advanced model extensions
in Chapters 19 and 20.)
The number of parameters in a model is restricted to
15 parameters. (None of the models estimated in the text were larger than

Note, you will receive a "self extracting archive" file named ealsetup.exe.
Save this file onto a work directory anywhere on your computer's hard

setup kit for EA/LimDep. By double clicking the name of the
file in any explorer, you will execute the unzipping program which will
create SETUP.EXE and a group of other files on your computer's hard drive.
Now, to set up EA/LimDep on your computer, you must execute the setup program.
The setup procedure for EA/LimDep is exceedingly simple and will take only
a minute or so. There are no decisions for you to make; just allow
the installation program to put the program in the default locations.
EA/LimDep may be downloaded when you purchase of Econometric Analysis, 5th Edition. EA/LimDep is intended only for single individual use in conjunction with the textbook. It may not be redistributed. EA/LimDep may not be installed on any network in any institutional setting, nor may it be installed in any computing laboratory for general use. Any other use of the software constitutes a violation of the copyright of Econometric Software, Inc., the provider of the software.
Because EA/LimDep is free with the textbook purchase, please be aware
that it does not come with provision of technical support. EA/LimDep
is a teaching tool and is not designed as a substitute for the complete
LIMDEP software. Please understand that the restrictions in the program
are "hardwired." You cannot increase the size of data set that EA/LimDep can handle, and the unavailable features are not missing because of flaws in the program; they are disabled.
If you are interested in utilizing all of the modeling tools, program
features and data capacity of LIMDEP, you may purchase the complete
LIMDEP software package as a first time purchaser. We do emphasize,
because EA/LimDep is free with your purchase of Econometric Analysis,
you are not eligible for update prices or any discounts on your LIMDEP
software purchase. The LIMDEP documentation is included with a LIMDEP
software license, but is not available for purchase by EA/LimDep users.
