Omitting a specific week from equation estimation

Postby BT454 » Thu Jun 17, 2021 9:01 am

Hi all!
I need to omit a specific week from an equation estimation (I am working in weekly data). I would like to use the same code as I do for my quarterly equations (example would be including the variable dummy2020q1 to omit the first quarter of 2021). Is it possible to do the same for weekly data? I have tried using the date associated with the week (6/11/2021), and the week number (2021w4), and the program crashes.
Is there away to do this?
Thanks!
Bob

Weeks are denoted by the date of the first day of the week. Once you know the date you want to exclude, something like:

Code: Select all

smpl if @date<>@dateval("myear-mymonth-myday", "YYYY-MM-DD")
