FAVAR model estimation

Postby sivek » Tue Jun 13, 2017 2:23 am


Please help. I am trying to run a FAVAR model using the FAVAR add-in but its giving me a response which says "factor 1 is not the same length as sample." it my first time running a FAVAR. Secondly what the appropriate minimum number of variables if one is to successful run a FAVAR model.

I think you should change the sample size because you may have the missing values after the transformation of the variables. Next time you should ask question in the Add=in support section.

I'm sorry for dumb question but I've needed some clearance. To determine the number of factors, there are two ways, if I'm not wrong. Principal component analysis and Nai&Bg (2002) test. However, is it possible to run Bai&Ng test in Eviews, or in any other programme?

I've found this code, but I'm not sure because he emphasizes panel data in the description below:
"This code computes the various panel criteria proposed by Bai and Ng (2002) to determine the number of factors in a multifactor model of large dimension. "
