### Re: Panel data regression in Eviews

Your question is a good one, but the answer takes a lecture or two in econometrics. (Nothing much directly to do with EViews.) You might want to start with reviewing an appropriate textbook.

### Re: Defining derivatives and constrains?

The negative R-squared indicates that the program has not converged to a global optimum. You may want to try different starting values.

More importantly: Estimating 4 parameters with 8 observations is usually pretty hopeless.

View/Coefficient diagnostics/Wald test

If you are getting a negative R^2 from least squares, you might want to post your output.

### Re: Defining derivatives and constrains?

c(2) is negative. c(2)^2 is not. What about the failure notification of non-zero gradient in the results table, wouldnt it question the robustness or validation of the results? This means that EViews may not have converged to the optimum Also for some sections of my data, I get negative R-squared a...

Show people exactly what you've done and maybe someone will chime in having figured out where things have gone astray.

### Re: Defining derivatives and constrains?

I think what's happening is that the command you are using puts a coefficient in front of each term. Try writing this out specified as a formula as shown at http://www.eviews.com/help/helpintro.html#page/content%2FRegress1-Specifying_an_Equation_in_EViews.html

### Re: genr x from quarterly page to yield a particular annual growth rate

I think

Code: Select all

`!annualgrowthrate = 100 * (@mav(x,4)/@mav(x(-4),4)-1)`

works. But I'd give it a test.

### Re: genr x from quarterly page to yield a particular annual growth rate

If you only know x1, for example, I don't see how you can compute (x8+x7+x6+x5) / (x4+x3+x2+x1)

Maybe

Code: Select all

`x = (1+!annualgrowthrate/4)*x(-1)`

### Re: Unbalanced panel data

Almost. You don't have to have all values for all cross-sections, but you do need all values for some cross-sections.

### Re: Unbalanced panel data

Observations are only included in a regression when all the variables have values for a that observation.
