### Data transformation

Posted:

**Fri May 26, 2017 6:33 am**Dear Eviews users,

Im having a trouble to understand how to transform my data, I hope some one can help me here.

I am going to estimate a lCobb-Douglas production function, however my variables dont have the same unit of measurements, reason why I need to standardize my data. The issue is that for estimating a Cobb-Douglas function we need to take the logarithm form of the data, now I am not sure if it is correct to standardize the log of the variables?

Thank you in advance
