### Forecasting ARDL in EViews 10

My dependent variable is a ddlog number of passengers at an airport and so the forecast is of ddlog passengers. How do I convert back into a real number of passengers ? I think in EViews 11, you have the option to have the forecast produced in real numbers? But not in E-Views 10? Thanks for your help.

Use d(dlog(passenger)) as your dependent variable.

Many thanks, Gareth.

How do I get a forecast of passengers for subsequent months using the lagged independent variable coefficients? For example, I want to get the forecast passengers for 12 months beyond the last month with an actual independent variable value based on the lagged coefficients?

I don't understand the question.

Isn't that just what a forecast is?

Here's the equation. Pax is the dependent variable and searches is the independent variable. I have data for the independent variable up to May 2019. What I would like the forecast to do is to estimate the dependent variable for 8 months after May 2019 using the lagged coefficients but it will only forecast to May 2019.

Thanks

Mike

Your model says you need the contemporaneous value of the independent variable to forecast the dependent variable in a given period. You don't have that. The forecast can't be done with this model.

OK. Thanks
