GAUSS tscsFit Example

Introduction

The following is an example of implementing the tscsFit procedure. This program provides estimates for the classic Grunfeld dataset [grunfeld.dat]. These data were originally found in PhD dissertation of Y. Grunfeld (University of Chicago, 1958). The data is a balanced dataset covering 10 firms [firm = 1, ..., 10] for 20 years (1935-1950) [ year = 1935, ..., 1954].

The program follows 2.6.1 from 'Econometric Analysis of Panel Data', Baltagi, 2005. It estimates the model

$$investment_{it} = a + B_{1}firmValue_{it} + B_{2}capitalStock_{it} + u_{it}$$ $$u_{it} = c_{i} + v_{it}$$

Estimate the Model

This example uses the formula string syntax which requires no data loading prior to calling the procedure. This greatly simplifies the required code.

new;
cls;
library tsmt;

//Create file name with full path
dataset = getGAUSSHome $+ "pkgs/tsmt/examples/grunfeld.dat";

//Call tscsFit
call tscsFit(dataset, "investment ~ firm_value + capital", "firm");

Output

The printed results include the OLS dummy variable estimates (also known as the within or fixed effects estimates), the constrained pooled ols model, and the feasible gls error components model:
