Hello,
I did a logit transformation and want to manually calculate untransformed coefficient value.
I want to verify does @logit(c(2)) = LN(c(2)/(1c(2))) ?
Thank you.

Re: Putting limits on estimated coefficient values
I had looked at the explanation of special functions>logit transformation explanation but cannot map it to how it transforms my c(2).
1/(1+exp(x))) = exp(x)/(1+exp(x))
c(2) has no relation whatsoever with the expression on LHS..
can elaborate please ?
1/(1+exp(x))) = exp(x)/(1+exp(x))
c(2) has no relation whatsoever with the expression on LHS..
can elaborate please ?

 Nonnormality and collinearity are NOT problems!

You get 1/(1+exp(c(2))))
Re: Putting limits on estimated coefficient values
Thank you!
The whole purpose for @logit transformation is to impose/force limits for c(2). For the @logit(c(2)) conversion, the NLS estimation of c(2) is 3,475962 which is clearly not within intended range limits of 0<c(2)<1. So in order to obtain value for @logit(c(2)), substitute this value in 1/(1+exp(3,475962)) = 0,969996 which is between intended limits. But is it OK to conclude that I have constrained c(2) in this case ?

In most cases like this people want the coefficient to between 0 and 1, not specifically the parameter c(2). As you say, using @logit does this. So think of the coefficient as being the value of @logit(c(2)).

Hello,
Is there a way to restrict the parameter c(2) in eviews9 ?Thank you!

Re: Putting limits on estimated coefficient values
The answer is that same as for earlier versions. You cannot restrict c(2) per se, but generally that's not what's desired. Instead, replace every appearance of c(2) with @logit(c(2)).

Re: Putting limits on estimated coefficient values
Hi,
I am doing the reparameterization shown in this forum to coinstraint my coefficients.
CODE: SELECT ALL
A reparameterization that satisfies these constraints is
CODE: SELECT ALL
I am having an error with my code and I don´t know why. The error is:
Maximum number of iterations exceeded in "OPTIMIZE(MIN)
OPTIVOL(Z1,VDUM,MCOV)" on line 1.
My code is
Please help!
