Eviews - list of features to include

Postby tvonbrasch » Sat Aug 12, 2017 6:23 am


Here is a list of features (in prioritised order) I hope you can add to the next version of Eviews:

1) Allow for exogenous variable to enter the cointegrating space in a VEC models, this has been on your to do list for five years see: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5340&p=26814#p26814 and viewtopic.php?f=29&t=11368&p=39922#p39922 , see also the excellent suggestions in the post viewtopic.php?f=8&t=18196

2) ARDL function: allow the user to impose restrictions on the long run cointegrating relationship (eg homogeneity restrictions), see http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=12027

3) Stochastic simulation of model containing future values of endogenous variables, see User Manual II, page 756 or post:
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=15556&p=51947&hilit=dynare#p51947 (a minimum would be to make an addin that passes an Eviews model over to Matlab which is then solved by Dynare (see http://www.dynare.org/) and where the results are automatically transferred back to Eviews)

4) Allow the endogenous variable in a model to enter more than once to the left hand side of the equality sign, see viewtopic.php?f=10&t=12959&p=47562#p47562. As it is now, one has to rewrite e.g., logit models to overcome this problem.

5) Improve the Eviews optimizer, see viewtopic.php?f=10&t=15917&p=53141#p53141.

6) Printing of Norwegian vowels in pdf documents, see viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16318&p=53378#p53378

7) Allow for importing data directly using API in Jason-Stat format. There are now plenty of organisations offering data freely using APIs, see e.g.,
- National Institute for Statistics of Italy<http://apistat.istat.it/?q=help>,
- Statistics Norway<http://data.ssb.no/api/?lang=en>,
- UK’s Office for National Statisticshttps://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/ap ... rvice/home,
- Statistics Sweden<http://www.scb.se/en_/About-us/Open-data-API/API-for-the-Statistical-Database-/>,
- Statistics Denmark<http://www.dst.dk/da/Statistik/statistikbanken/api.aspx>,
- Statistics Greenland<http://bank.stat.gl/pxweb/en/Greenland/>, S
- tatistics Finland<http://pxnet2.stat.fi/PXWeb/pxweb/en/StatFin/>,
- Instituto Galego de Estatística<http://www.ige.eu/web/mostrar_paxina.jsp?paxina=004015&idioma=gl>,
- Central Statistics Office of Ireland<http://www.cso.ie/webserviceclient/>,
- United Nations Economic Commission for Europe<http://w3.unece.org/PXWeb/en>,
- Eurostat<http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/json-and-unicode-web-services/about-this-service>
- OECD https://data.oecd.org/api/

8) Allow Eviews to connect with https addresses, see forum post: http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=18214

Keep up the great work, and thanks again for making the rgets addin (viewtopic.php?t=18338)

regarding importing data directly through APIs in Jason-Stat format. Now there is an easy way to do this in EXCEL for data from e.g. Eurostat, see https://stat.qumio.com/.

Maybe this can inspire the Eviews team to build such import functionality into Eviews as well.....?
