Colin Cameron's main research is in microeconometrics for cross-section data and has appeared in many of the leading all-round economics journals and econometrics field journals. His research on count data modeling includes a 1986 Journal of Applied Econometrics article “Econometrics Models Based on Count Data: Comparisons and Applications of Some Estimators and Tests” (joint with Pravin Trivedi). His research on robust statistical inference in regression models with errors that are clustered includes the 2008 Review of Economics and Statistics article “Bootstrap-based Improvements for Inference with Clustered Errors”, the 2011 Journal of Business and Statistics article “Robust Inference with Multi-Way Clustering” (both joint work with Jonah Gelbach and Doug Miller) and the 2015 Journal of Human Resources article “A Practitioner's Guide to Cluster-Robust Inference” (joint with Doug Miller).
Colin Cameron is the coauthor with
Pravin Trivedi of three leading books in microeconometrics.
using Stata is a text
presenting advanced microeconometrics methods and
their implementation using Stata, the leading
econometrics package for economics researchers. The
two-volume second edition was published in 2022. Microeconometrics:
Methods and Applications is one of the two standard
advanced Ph.D. texts in microeconometrics. Regression
Analysis of Count Data is one of only two
Econometric Society Monographs to have a second
edition. Colin is also the author
of the undergraduate text Analysis of Economics Data: An
Introduction to Econometrics.
His books and research articles have received over 50,000 Google Scholar citations. He has been a keynote speaker at international conferences and has given many short courses on advanced microeconometrics around the world. His personal interests include various outdoor activities in the mountains.
