Advances in Econometrics is a series of research annuals first published in 1982 by JAI Press. In this paper, we present a brief history of the series over its first 30 years. We describe key events in the history of the volume, and give information about the key contributors: editors, editorial board members, Advances in Econometrics Fellows, and authors who have contributed to the great success of the series.
The collection of chapters in this 30th volume of Advances in Econometrics provides a well-deserved tribute to Thomas B. Fomby and R. Carter Hill, who have served as editors of the Advances in Econometrics series for 25 and 21 years, respectively. Volume 30 contains a more varied collection of chapters than previous volumes, in essence mirroring the wide variety of econometric topics covered by the series over 30 years. Volume 30 starts with a chapter discussing the history of this series over the last 30 years. The next five chapters can be broadly categorized as focusing on model specification and testing. Following this section are three contributions that examine instrumental variables models in quite different settings. The next four chapters focus on applied macroeconomics topics. The final chapter offers a practical guide to conducting Monte Carlo simulations.
I would like to thank Carter Hill and other people at LSU who helped organize a very enjoyable conference on the Hausman Specification Test in February 2012. Many of the chapters in this volume were given at the conference. I was pleased to be around many friends at the conference, and I found the chapters very interesting. I especially appreciate the chapter by Professor Hector Zapata and Ms. Cristina Camanita, which considered the diffusion of my econometrics ideas. In particular, I did not know that these techniques were widely used in other disciplines. I found their approach very innovative and very interesting.

We are pleased to introduce Advances in Econometrics Volume 29: Essays in Honor of Jerry Hausman. This volume contains research papers on the theory and practice of econometrics that are linked to, or related to, or inspired by the work of Jerry Hausman. We have divided the contributions into three sections: Estimation, Panel Data and Specification Testing. A visit to Professor Hausman's web page (http://economics.mit.edu/faculty/hausman) will show that he has published extensively in these three areas. His remarkable influence is outlined in “The Diffusion of Hausman's Econometric Ideas” by Zapata and Caminita. Their paper is presented first, before the sections, as it examines way the diffusion of Jerry Hausman's econometric ideas using citation counts, citing authors, and source journals of his most referenced citers.
