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)

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.

Excel date read bug

Here are two Excel files that differ only in that I moved the date column at the right in the first to be on the left in the second. EViews reads the dates in the second but not the first.

Re: Defining derivatives and constrains?

I'm not sure there are any general tricks, although perhaps someone has a list of useful ones.

Re: Defining derivatives and constrains?

Hello There, I'm trying to fit the following equation (known as lotka-Volterra) to real data series (x, y, z) to estimate its parameters (a, b, c, d): dx/dt = (a)x - (b)x^2 + (c)x*y - (d)x*z Could you please help mw with followings? 1- how could I define dx/dt in the equation specification? 2- Is t...

bad axis scaling (not exactly a bug, but...)

Here's a scatter diagram with the y-axis being a dummy variable. Having the "2" label when no point is above 1 is kinda ugly.

Re: Automatic ARIMA Forecasting

In one case you are predicting the first difference and in the other you are predicting the level.

window arrangement (more unnicety than bug)

The location of opening new windows could use a little work. Here's an example where a window was opened such that scrolling was required even though there was plenty of room for a better location.

Re: Fixed Effects- Industry and Year

I believe your problem is that there are many NA values in saving1 and that in the remaining sample there really is perfect multicollinearity.
