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

works. But I'd give it a test.

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

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

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

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.

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

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...

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.

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

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.

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