How can i run the “Hatemi-J Cointegration test” code with a .txt data file ?
I have the program code of this test:
And a .txt file with time- series data included 1 dependable variable and 4 independable variables.
I’m just a new user of GAUSS. Can you give me the steps to do this ? Thanks very much
The first step in running this code is changing the first line of the program:
load z[obs,var] =b22.txt;
to work for your data file. For testing purposes, you can download a data text file called test_data. This file has 10 rows and 4 columns. You can load it into a variable z in GAUSS like this:
load z[10,4] =test_data.txt;
Now after running this line, you can print z using the print command like this:
This will confirm that you have loaded it correctly. Then (assuming you want to use the test_data.txt file) you can change the first few lines of the file you linked to, to this:
obs = 10; var = 4; load z[obs,var]=test_data.txt; //Assign the first column of 'z' to 'y' y = z[1:obs,1]; //Assign the second, third and fourth //columns of 'z' to 'x' x = z[1:obs,2:var]; call main(y,x,4,2,12); end;
You said you are new to GAUSS, so if you need more detailed explanation of what is going on here or run into any trouble, please post your questions! We are happy to help.
Thanks very much. But how can i load a data file into the code ? I don’t know how to do this so i receive: “(0) : error G0014 : ” : File not found”
Take a look at this post here. Does that resolve your problem?
i follow your guide with the test_data file but i receive:
(0) : error G0121 : Matrix not positive definite

What’s happen ? Could you give me an exactly code to run this test succesfully ?
Thanks for your help
Try this data file example_data_ci.txt. Change this line:
load z[obs,var] =b22.txt;
to these three lines:
obs = 100; var = 9; load z[obs,var] =example_data_ci.txt;
This should work. Make sure that the file example_data_ci.txt is in your GAUSS current working directory.
