MIDAS

EViews9Patch_062816.exe to 9.5 from 9.0
and update pdf document to date "2016-03-14"

1 user guide 2, p305, the "Midas.WF1" is not found in "EV9 Manual Data" of EV 9 Example Files. Would someone please post it here in this forum?
2 user guide 2, p309, "The large positive estimate of \theta_2, is statistically different from 1, and value of 6.62", however, from the output shown on p308, the p-value is 0.5309, it is NOT even statistically different from 0, why "statistically different from 1"

I follow the https://youtu.be/Y0ZFekCDWmE , but the connection to FRED fails. The SSL/TLS might be detected and interfered by Chinese Great Firewall.

I download the data from https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/PAYEMS
PAYEMS.csv
All Employees: Total Nonfarm Payrolls
(15.78 KiB) Downloaded 78 times

but the data is not consistent to those shown on the video (video time 03:49)

for examples, "2015-12-01,143146" in CSV, yet "143242" in video

Not sure on the documentation.


With regards to FRED, the data stored by FRED can be changed at any time, so there is no way to guarantee the data will be the same.
