Running a regression with exponential form

Hi,

I've been asked to run a regression with an exponential from... but I don't know what should be typed in in eviews, please help!!!!

my regression is: E (lwage|exper, educ) = b0 +b1exper +b2(1-exp (b3*educ))

Don't know how to do because not sure how to deal with the things that inside the bracket, since b3 is inside the exp...
have tried to expand the whole equation, but still cannot solve the problem of b3 inside the bracket.

Non-normality and collinearity are NOT problems!

Re: Running a regression with exponential form

EViews is perfectly happy to run a nonlinear regression where you write out an explicit formula using c(1), c(2), etc. for the names of the coefficients.

For instance

Code: Select all

`ls y = c(1) + exp(c(2)*x)`

Re: Running a regression with exponential form

Thank you so much!! My regression is similar and writing the equation in this way worked for me.
