 # trouble with code

Good day,

I have a portion of a code below. I have estimated a dynamic model.

`yt = A1yt(-1) + A2xt(1) + A3xt(2) + A4xt(3)`

I am trying to retrieve the long-run estimates of the parameters and their standard errors

`a2 = A2/(1-A1); a3 = A3/(1-A1); a4 = A4/(1-A1)`

I believe this is what the code below is trying to do; But for some reason, the long run estimates (ai's) appear to be the same as the short run's (Ai'). I have been trying to figure out why but can't appear to find where the error is. Any help? please?

Thanks,

Ozey

bt1 = ththat1[3:k2+1]; phi1=ththat1;

p1 = (eye(k2-1)~(bt1./(1-phi1)))./(1-phi1);

bse1=p1*sb1[2:k2+1,2:k2+1]*p1';

/* for group2*/
bt2 = tht2hat[2:rows(tht2hat)]; phi2=tht2hat;

p2 = (eye(k2-1)~(bt2./(1-phi2)))./(1-phi2);

bse2=p2*se2*p2';

bt = bt1|bt2;
bse = sqrt(diag(bse1))|sqrt(diag(bse2));
bt'|bse';``````

You are much more likely to get a helpful answer if you tell people specifically: which variables in the code correspond to which variables in the equations, what you expect from different sections of the code and what you actually found. aptech
