Doubt: Seasonal Adjustment by Tramo/Seats

Hi all! Once or twice a month I have to apply a seasonal adjustment by Tramo/Seats instead of X12 cause its the official way of some statistics here in Brazil (as in EU). To do this, I used to cope with Demetra software. But its not programmable. X12 is relatively easy to program (and, by the way, E...

Re: New MS Office (v 14)

I understand. Anyway, its improbable they'll change the format again (xlsx to any other; we hope). Tks.

New MS Office (v 14)

Together with new Windows 7, MS is developing a new MS Office. The nowadays version (XLSX Excel files) has lots of problems (but nice things too - like the possibility to work with more than 256 columns in XLSX files). Now MS is working on a new version to be launched together to new Windows. I'd li...

Re: Simulation/Models Webpages

The Fair model (Ray Fair) can give useful tips (its really dense, but cool to macro modelers).

Re: Time Series Functions - Year to Date (YTD) Variations

The objective is automatize results. I have a model object that generates the forecasts (indexes). So, I have a group with results (_0 series) and its transformations (yoy, ytd, mom etc). In a group object I always have all the comparisons without any new manipulation. To one or two estimations, ok....

Re: Time Series Functions - Year to Date (YTD) Variations

This last code worked well. Tks. Anyway, I wrote a set of @recodes do avoid creating another series (series 'sum'). It follows below. If u have an instant idea how could I'd have a better line without creating another series (like the 'sum' one) or I'd appreciate. As always, tks for yours, Glenns's ...

Re: Time Series Functions - Year to Date (YTD) Variations

Ooops. I was using the code and I realize that this works only for January and February. To march until December, not. In fact, Jan=Jan, Feb=Jan+Feb. Mar=Jan+Feb+Mar. Dec=Jan+...+Dec (not only the last two observations). Do u have any suggestion to change this?! I adapted your idea and used a succes...

Re: Time Series Functions - Year to Date (YTD) Variations

Pretty good alternative. Tks a lot. I didn't realize that I can use only scalars in TS functions.

So, I'd like to suggest the inclusion of somekind of functions in future versions to complement @pcy, @pca etc TS functions.

Time Series Functions - Year to Date (YTD) Variations

Hi all! I don't know if its a problem or a misunderstanding about time series functions (and date functions). I usually take @pcy, @pc and @movsum to get yoy, 12m acum. sum and mom percentage changes from series. Now I'd like to get ytd estimates (acum. in the year, until the specific month). I was ...

Re: Frequency Conversion - Help

Tks Glenn.

Usually I do it manually, indeed. But I'd like to optimize/programming to do that not only to one variable, but to 16. And they are revised quarterly. Anyway, tks for the tip about conversion and excluding points. It was useful. Fabio.

Frequency Conversion - Help

Hi all! I'd like to convert a quarterly time series (GDP) into a monthly one. But in a specific way: I'd like to do something like: 2000:01 NA 2000:02 NA 2000:03 Value 2000:04 NA 2000:05 NA 2000:06 Value ... Anyone have any idea how to procede this?! I can use the EV conversion methods, but I don't ...

Re: Some requests

At least for programs, I think there are both already! Maybe there are no such option or is not so user friendly like others softwares (eg. Matlab), but they work. On 'run program', there are some options (execution mode). And u can put them as default (eg. max. errors before halting). And usually E...
