good way to batch set add factors

Postby capuchin » Mon Nov 18, 2019 12:37 pm

I'm looking for a good way to
1) set a group of add factors so "that equation has no residuals at actuals"
2) make it so that the add factors for the sample are equal to the add factors that were in effect for a certain period. for example, if the add factor for GDP in 2019q3 was -2, I want to quickly (ie automatically via a program) make the add factor equal to -2 over the entire forecast period.

Any ideas?

1) Take a look at the model object's addinit procedure.

2) For a single variable, something like the following will work. Introducing a loop will let you handle multiple add factors.

Code: Select all

!fill_value = GDP_A(@dtoo("2019q3"))
smpl 2019q4 @last   ' Replace with your forecast sample
GDP_A = !fill_value

Return to “Models”
