I have three time series, and I want to make nice figures of them by using the GRAPH-function in SHAZAM. The series are as follows:
The first one: Daily data, which start in March 23, 1995 and end in March 28, 2015.
The second series is weekly scale and start in week 16, 1995 and ends in week 16, 2015.
The third series is monthly data that starts March 2015 and ends in March 2015.
My **problem** is to time-scale correctly the X-axis for these three series when I use the GRAPH-function in SHAZAM. I hope I can get some help to solve the problem.

TLWed, 08 Mar 2017 09:37:24 +0000http://ask.econometrics.com/question/752/MATRIX ALGEBRAhttp://ask.econometrics.com/question/746/matrix-algebra/ I have a matrix A. Let's say 10 columns and 50 rows. Problem: I want to delete rows 25 to 30, and use the remaining part of the matrix in the calculations. I checked the Shazam manual (pp. 406-407), but the example was not easy to understand. Any good ideas how to delelete rows (and columns)?

I have a single time series "A", and the length of the series is 32 years. The series start in 1983 and last observation is in 2014. The single time series "A" store in a separate file. I have a multi series 1, 2, 3, 4, ….N which are generated series. They are stored in B and with length 50 years.
Problem: How can I stack the **single** series A (1x32) and the **multi series** B (Nx50) with A on the **top**, and GRAPH the time series? **Note** that the single series A starts in 1983 ends in 2014 and the multi-series starts in 2015.

Shazam is a flexible tool. I want to use Shazam in my input-output analysis. The input-output coefficients are stored in a text-file, dimension 50x50. *Question*: How can I “transform” data-files to matrices so I can solve the system by using matrix algebra?

I have some problems of autocorrelation (serial correlation) and heteroskedasticity in a regression model but I don't know how to remove it. I read on the net that we have to use the Newey-West estimator but I don't know how the way to use it on Shazam.
Thanks a lot,

As soon as estimation is completed, Shazam exits and I have no opportunity to view the results. I believe that estimation is completing, as it stays open just long enough for me to catch a glimpse on the output screen of what appear to be the results. Any experience and/or help with this issue?
Thanks.StevenRWed, 27 Jul 2016 15:54:10 +0000http://ask.econometrics.com/question/721/Variable -99999 currently existshttp://ask.econometrics.com/question/718/variable-99999-currently-exists/ I keep running into this error despite ensuring that i do not have (or trying to generate) a variable with the same name.
How would i clear the memory?

I tried to do some programming in Shazam, but I unfortunately I am stranded. I have the following problem that I’m struggling with: My objective is to generate a selected number of AR(1)-series by using the do-loop command on the following script (which only generates a single series):
SAMPLE 1 5
GENR YEAR = TIME(0)
GENR X2 = NOR(3)
GENR y = 1
GENR y = 1 + 0.2*LAG(Y) + X2
PRINT y year
Further – the problem is to store the n-AR(1) series in a n-column matrix and then be able to graph the series in a single figure and as well (optionally) separately (with the generated YEAR-variable on the x-axis). Great if I could get some help with the right SHAZAM -script which could sort this out :-)
Kind regards,
TL
TLFri, 11 Mar 2016 15:54:55 +0000http://ask.econometrics.com/question/707/How to test X affects Y through Mhttp://ask.econometrics.com/question/705/how-to-test-x-affects-y-through-m/ Have a simple question. I have a dep. variable Y and an independent variable, X. X also affects another binary variable M and M affects Y. I want to show that X affects Y through M. M is exogenous. This is my strategy. In Step 1, I estimate a uni variate logit model of M on X. Get the predicted values. This is the portion of M that is explained by X only. I then use these predicted values as an independent variable to predict Y. If the coefficient is significant, I know X affects Y through M. Is this ok? Is there a cite or reference to show this can be done.

Besides, I will use FRONTIER 4.1c and SHAZAM code for estimates of the parameters of the regional frontiers and metafrontier respectively.
But my question is:
• May I use the value of output of the different industrial groups (like manufactures of food products and beverages, non-metallic mineral products, … ) as a dependent variable to deal with Technical Efficiency and Technology gaps with Stochastic Meta-frontier Analysis without aggregation problem?
AYThu, 24 Dec 2015 13:35:12 +0000http://ask.econometrics.com/question/704/Is there an easy way to compute EKS price index?http://ask.econometrics.com/question/608/is-there-an-easy-way-to-compute-eks-price-index/The EKS index avoids base-group bias in multilateral comparisons as it is the geometric mean of bilateral Fisher indices computed using all possible bases. Is there an easy way to compute it?
Also, with panel data, to make cross-sectional EKS indices comparable over time, Robert Hill (AER, 2004) suggests a method that uses a time-series of price indices to link them over time. Is there a Shazam procedure to do that?

I want to estimate a model where I have a mean equation of:

Where alpha is an intercept, Y is production, R is the interest rate and D is a dummy variable for risk?
I do not know if it is possible/allowed to model the volatility of investment in this way?
And I do not know what my variance equation will be. Is it just:
Vt= α + Rt-1(squared)
Where Rt-1(squared) is my residuals from the mean equation in t-1 squared?
I will be very greatful for all insight:)siljeMon, 14 Apr 2014 13:39:38 +0000http://ask.econometrics.com/question/495/
