### Re: New Series By Sort

Maybe I'm not out of the woods yet... If @rapplyranks needs a vector with unique integers, then I will need to fill that vector with the right numbers. Does eviews have a way to retrieve an element's magnitude rank within the sample? Say if I have a continuous series that ranges from 100 (min)to 100...

### Re: New Series By Sort

For sure, it's not for estimation or anything. I'm doing this data manipulation purely for a supplementary visualization. I have unstructured/undated data, and would like to sort them from high to low (value-wise). How would a vector help with that? I noticed vector and matrix objects don't support ...

### New Series By Sort

Hey again, I'm aware of the command x.sort(-) for sorting a series in descending order. However, when I try creating a new series based off that sorted series, it doesn't keep the order. Is there anyway to generate a new series that is a sorted (ascending or descending) version of the original serie...

### Re: ASH Data Series

The eviews guide was super helpful up until that point. I thought now that I know how the commands work I could take some educated guesses. I have been trying things like: x1.distdata(dtype=symmetryqq) matrix_1 Didn't work though, still I'm not sure how to retrieve the symmetry qq matrix Anyone else...

### Re: ASH Data Series

Thanks for looking into this question, your solution works nicely.

One thing I did notice though was there is no way (via the user interface) to make distdata for quantile quantile symmetry.

Maybe there is a command for this?

### ASH Data Series

Hello, I have made an average shifted histogram from one of my series, now I'd like to separately store the x & y axes of the histogram into 2 series. To do this, I'd have to retrieve the values from the ASH graph's x and y axes. The x axis is straight-forward, but the y axis is not -- its the f...

### Re: Reference All Series Matching String Comparison

Wow, that was a much easier fix than I had in mind. Thank you! In fact, since it's my 100th post, I feel obliged to thank Eviews Gareth & Jason, and all the knowledgeable members of this forum. Your continued support has made a big impact on my use of this product, and contributed to my decision...

### Reference All Series Matching String Comparison

Hey, I'm trying to delete all series that contain the suffix "01" Let's say I have a string variable: %suffix = "01" 1. How do I construct the right kind of loop? Conceivably, I could use for %i x1 x2 ... but I'd have to input them all here manually, as far as I can tell. I guess...

Ok, just was extra curious about that part. Thanks again.

As promised, I did a backflip. Or attempted one rather.

### Re: Probability Density Question

yea, i think .398 is when it's centered at zero with normal standard deviation, or all that stuff. But yes, that does clear that question up. It must have been a coincidence. And lastly, the above question about relative probability, or whatever you want to call it, concerning whether we get any uni...

### Re: Probability Density Question

Thanks startz, Your explanation was really helpful, especially how F(b)-f(a)/(b-a) reduces to the pdf. I'm verging on an epiphany :) Keeping in mind we cannot evaluate the pdf at a point, I'm still trying to illustrate the importance of the point in a graphical way, to show where the biggest return ...

### Probability Density Question

Hello, I understand how taking the integral of the probability density results in the cumulative distribution, and conversely, taking the derivative of the CDF results in the PDF, but what I'm not so clear on is if the typical calculus partial derivative interpretation is meaningful in this case. Th...

### Toggling Midpoint for Interpolation

Hey, This is more of a math question, but has some cool implications for certain econometric models. Consider a probit model, where certain predicted outcomes of the model are of interest, for example when y_hat = .5 When plotting the x-axis of a response probability curve by interpolating the range...

### Re: Referencing Regressor Name Within Existing Equation

Thank you big time, Gareth. I don't know why I thought string members and data members would be in the same place. Anyway, now I know.
