Professor James G. MacKinnon is Sir Edward Peacock Professor of Econometrics in the Department of Economics at Queen’s University, Ontario. He is a founder of Journal of Applied Econometrics and still maintains the JoAE Data Archive. James MacKinnon has co-authored (with Russell Davidson, McGill University) the by now classical econometrics textbooks Estimation and Inference in Econometrics and Econometric Theory and Methods. He has contributed significantly to many areas of econometrics, and over the past couple of decades he has worked particularly within the field of developing theory for bootstrap testing in econometrics. For his contributions to scholarship, MacKinnon has been elected Fellow of the Econometric Society, and of the Royal Society of Canada.

In this Distinguished Lecture James MacKinnon will discuss bootstrap methods for large data sets that are clustered or grouped.
