### yearly weights

Posted:

**Wed Oct 18, 2017 4:46 am**Hi

I have a quarterly model where the weigths w1 and w2 are supposed to be the last years average (or sum) of a series V1 and V2, respectively, i.e.,

for the first quarter

for the second quarter

for the third quarter

for the forth quarter

How can this best be implemented in a model object in Eviews, i.e. as a single equation for w1?

I have a quarterly model

Code: Select all

` p=w1*p1+w2*p2`

for the first quarter

Code: Select all

`w1=v1(-1)+v1(-2)+v1(-3)+v1(-4)`

for the second quarter

Code: Select all

`w1=v1(-2)+v1(-3)+v1(-4)+v1(-5)`

for the third quarter

Code: Select all

`w1=v1(-3)+v1(-4)+v1(-5)+v1(-6)`

for the forth quarter

Code: Select all

`w1=v1(-4)+v1(-5)+v1(-6)+v1(-7)`

How can this best be implemented in a model object in Eviews, i.e. as a single equation for w1?
