Re: SE & t-stats for descriptive stats

Testing for the standard deviation different from zero doesn't make any sense. If the sample standard deviation is different from zero, then so is the true standard deviation.

For the mean, try

Numerical stuff for ordered probit

I have an ordered probit model which seems to have some numerical sensitivities. Some specifications won't run. Others run, but the results are somewhat different from what one gets in R.

Is there advice on optimization method or other choices likely to lead to the most accurate estimates?

Workfile naming bug and unclear dialog

If you read in foo.RData into EViews 11, the workfile is named "foo.rdata.wf1." Shouldn't it be just "foo.wf1?" Also, when R, Matlab and other programs use case sensitive variables. When EViews reads in "HBCU" and "hbcu" you are given the option to overwrite, ...

spool naming

It would be nice if there were a way to reference the latest object added to a spool, for purposes of naming and commenting. Right now it seems one has to keep count to reference untitled01, untitled02, etc if the spool is being loaded by a pon statement.
