Cointegration is an important tool for modeling the long-run relationships in time series data. If you work with time series data, you will likely find yourself needing to use cointegration at some point. This blog provides an in-depth introduction to cointegration and will cover all the nuts and bolts you need to get started.Tagged in
Panel data, sometimes referred to as longitudinal data, is data that contains observations about different cross sections across time. Panel data exhibits characteristics of both cross-sectional data and time-series data. This blend of characteristics has given rise to a unique branch of time series modeling made up of methodologies specific to panel data structure. This blog offers a complete guide to those methodologies including the nature of panel data series, types of panel data, and panel data models.
In time series modeling we often encounter trending or nonstationary time series data. Understanding the characteristics of such data is crucial for developing proper time series models. For this reason, unit root testing is an essential step when dealing with time series data. In this blog post, we cover everything you need to conduct time series data unit root tests using GAUSS.
The statistical characteristics of time series data often violate the assumptions of conventional statistical methods. Because of this, analyzing time series data requires a unique set of tools and methods, collectively known as time series analysis. This article covers the fundamental concepts of time series analysis and should give you a foundation for working with time series data. Everything is covered from time series plotting to time series modeling.
The preliminary econometric package for Time Series and Panel Data Methods has been updated and functionality has been expanded in this first official release of tspdlib 1.0. The tspdlib 1.0 package includes functions for time series unit root tests in the presence of structural breaks, time series and panel data unit root tests in the [...]
Introduction The latest Discrete Choice Analysis Tools 2.1.0 is now available for release. If you own Discrete Choice 2.0 the update is available for free. New features include tools for computing: Average marginal effects (AME) Marginal effects at the mean (MEM). Change Log Added ability to compute average marginal effects. Added error checking for variable [...]
Introduction The posterior probability distribution is the heart of Bayesian statistics and a fundamental tool for Bayesian parameter estimation. Naturally, how to infer and build these distributions is a widely examined topic, the scope of which cannot fit in one blog. We can, however, start to build a better understanding of sampling by examining three [...]
Introduction We use regression analysis to understand the relationships, patterns, and causalities in data. Often we are interested in understanding the impacts that changes in the dependent variables have on our outcome of interest. Marginal effects measure the impact that an instantaneous unit change in one variable has on the outcome variable while all other [...]
In this blog, we examine one of the fundamentals of panel data analysis, the one-way error component model. We cover the theoretical background of the one-way error component model, we examine the fixed-effects and random-effects models, and provide an empirical example of both.
