Nonlinear Fixed Effects
Can anyone help me how to run nonlinear fixed effects on Eview? If i have equation like Y=a+b+b^2+c+c^2, what should i write in the command on Eviews?

Re: Nonlinear Fixed Effects
Are a,b, and c series with coefficients to be estimated?
Re: Nonlinear Fixed Effects
a is the intercept while B and C is beta. Am i answering your question? sorry...i am new on Eviews so I do not really understand about your question.

Re: Nonlinear Fixed Effects
As written, your equation doesn't seem to have any data in it.
Re: Nonlinear Fixed Effects
Thank Startz for your prompt response. Please find the actual equation on the attached file. All of equation is data. I am using panel data in Eviews.

Re: Nonlinear Fixed Effects
This equation is linear in the coefficients, so it's estimated by linear least squares. Nothing special needs to be done about the fixed effects.
Re: Nonlinear Fixed Effects
Based on your explanation, does it mean that I can run it the same way as I run linear fixed effects, right?
I did run it using the same way as linear fixed effect with just different equation that I showed you. However, the result came out that pvalue is higher than 60% for all variables.

Re: Nonlinear Fixed Effects
Well, then the individual coefficients aren't significant.
You might want to test the joint significance of beta1 and beta2 or beta3 and beta4.

Re: Nonlinear Fixed Effects
What do you mean by running join significant? May I know how to do it? Do you have any link to share for this?
Re: Nonlinear Fixed Effects
By doing so, it will no longer be a fixed effect estimator, right?

Re: Nonlinear Fixed Effects
No, this is just a test of coefficients. You can do it either with fixed effects or without fixed effects.
Re: Nonlinear Fixed Effects
i cannot find those option based on the guideline. The guideline is in version 10 while mine is version 9.

Re: Nonlinear Fixed Effects
Look in the builtin help system under Wald test/coefficient restriction
Re: Nonlinear Fixed Effects
Hi, after doing further research, non linear time fixedeffects might fit my study.
May i know how to write equation in Eviews if i want to use time fixedeffects.
I use this equation as nonlinear fixed effects (Y c A _A^2 B B^2 lngdp crisis_year)
Then i tried the same equation on time fixedeffect and tick Fixed on both Crosssection and Period in Panel Option, but it shows "Near singular matrix".
Your prompt response is really appreciated.
