How can I retrieve statistics from a View of an object?

Postby Thommo » Wed Sep 17, 2008 2:03 pm

For example I can perform a Wald test from my equation, but I cannot retrieve the p-values and store them in a scalar in a program. Is there a way to do this?

Many of our Views, such as tests from an equation, do not have an inbuilt way to retrieve the statistics. However you can always retrieve values by first freezing the view into a table, and then referencing the cell containing that value.

For example:

Code: Select all

freeze(tab1) eq01.wald c(1)=0
scalar f_pvalue = @val(tab1(6,4))

Hey there, I want to extract F-statistics from Chow tables recursively (meaning I have to freeze around 130 tables and extract the F statistics). However, naturally, I get an error after the first one. Is there any command to close the table?

Sorry, I'm not getting any error. It's just the Chow series that are not filled (just with N/As). I am sure I am doing something wrong with the way I specify the dates for the Chow test.

Code: Select all

workfile taylor m 1999m01 2008m12

smpl 1999m01 2008m12
equation eq03.ls eonia c infl_h indgap

series(120) chow_rec
series(120) chow_rec_p

!i=1
while !i<120+1

freeze(tabchow) eq03.chow @first+!i
chow_f(!i,1) = @val(tabchow(6,2))
chow_f_p(!i,1) = @val(tabchow(6,5))

d tabchow

!i=!i+1
wend

d itera
d eq03


Note: I have also tried replacing the @first+!i with 1999m01+!i, but eviews always tells me that this is an illegal date. Any thought on how to solve this? I have tried going through the command reference, but I was not enlightened on this issue.

The attached code (using ev5) may help you make progress. It does the same chow breaktest over and over. You can see that you have to work a bit harder ( I,ve not done it here) to supply the changing breakpoint date and the date has to imply sufficient observations in the earlier and later periods.

Code: Select all

workfile taylor m 1999m01 2008m12

smpl 1999m01 2008m12
'
series eonia = @rnorm
series infl_h = @rnorm
series indgap = @rnorm
'
equation eq03.ls eonia c infl_h indgap

series chow_f
series chow_f_p

!i=25
while !i<60

freeze(tabchow) eq03.chow "2001m01"
chow_f(!i) = @val(tabchow(3,2))
chow_f_p(!i) = @val(tabchow(3,5))

d tabchow

!i=!i+1
wend
stop

Concerning the "freezing 130 tables", you may as well just freeze the table with the same name and then delete it after you are through with it. It helped a lot when I started getting workfiles with millions of frozen VAR output tables! Just a thought!

Or, just use the mode=overwrite option on the freeze command.
