Hello, if you have a time series, you can trasnform the real values of this data, into percentage values, that represent the net change from one period to another. Yo can do this by the formula ln(t/t-1). In eviews you can select the option log, or log dif, near the option freeze, in the menu of the series. Also in excel you can do this.

Im also new to eviews, but i wonder why people doesn´t help, the newcommers, many experts advicing experts.

Non-normality and collinearity are NOT problems!

Newcomers might find reading the first three chapters of EViews Illustrated, available for free at the EViews website, helpful.
