Re: Setting up if conditions in panel data

Hi everybody, I have a question. I have an unbalanced sample of 285 cross-sections and 67 time periods and am regressing one variable on a set of 5 independent variables (OLS). However, I also have a pool of dummy variables, indicating whether one of my cross sections has been specialised in lets s...

Re: F-Stat

ls x c estimate, method arch, arch-m->variance In other words you're not doing least squares (and thus there's no point in using the LS command...), but you're doing ARCH estimation. So you do ARCH(ARCHM=VAR) X C And you get no F-Stat, but then if you do: ARCH(ARCHM=VAR) X(-1) C You do get an F sta...

What does:

specifying redundant variables with GARCH

If you are doing least squares with a "magic" variable such as garch-in-mean on the right, is there a way to do the redundant variables test from the View menu? (Does the GARCH variable have a name?)

Re: F-Stat

I don't think you're doing what you think you're doing with that equation. You probably want to write it as: range_var c garch_var which will give you an F-stat (assuming you're doing least squares). I tried least squares of X on C adding in Garch-in-mean. (Post version 5). I did not get an F-stat....

Re: Cross Tabs with EViews?

Hello there, I am using EViews 6 and would like to do cross tabs with some of my data inside EViews. Would anyone know if EViews can do cross tabs, or if there is a work around in order to do them? (I would rather stay inside EViews and not make pivot tables in Excel if at all possible). Thank you ...

Hi guys, Sorry to be a pest but I'd really like to know if EVIEWS provides a procedure to correct the standard errors on coefficients in the Heckman two step? Please someone help!

Re: HOT KEYS in Eviews?

Although it is unlikely that we will add the ability to change hot-keys yourself, we're more than willing to listen to suggestions on other hot-keys you'd like added. So, for now, I'd suggest few EXCEL hot keys (as a lot of people are XLS users and these hot keys are common and intensively used). L...

Re: LSDV or Within-Estimator - what does eviews use?

Hello, as I understand it, the specification between LSDV and within-estimator is different. In LSDV you are including k+n regressors (the k X's, the n-1 binary variables, and the intercept) whereas you do the computational trick (demeaning the variables) in the other case. In the end the estimator...

Re: HOT KEYS in Eviews?

Although it is unlikely that we will add the ability to change hot-keys yourself, we're more than willing to listen to suggestions on other hot-keys you'd like added. IMHO, I think the addition of hot keys should be limited (not necessarily to zero). It's better to leave some keys "empty"...

Re: HOT KEYS in Eviews?

Hmm, not so many as I expect ... Could you tell me please, Is it possible to (re)program HOT KEY on my own? (e.g.: to use NOT "F10", but to reprogram as "CTRL+R") Andrej EViews doesn't give you a way to reprogram keys, but there are widely available utilities that do. My persona...

Re: Is it a Must to work with deflated data?

did u mean by choosing this option? http://i44.tinypic.com/2ahv5nk.jpg so 'deflating' is similar to 'transforming' the data, isn't it? cmiiw btw, what is the Cross-section SUR for? Yes, that could be a good approach. Here's what the manual says If you select Cross section weights, EViews will estim...
