Do you want to recognize the most suitable models for analysis of statistical data sets? This book provides a hands-on practical guide to using the most suitable models for analysis of statistical data sets using EViews - an interactive Windows-based computer software program for sophisticated data analysis, regression, and forecasting - to define and test statistical hypotheses. Rich in examples and with an emphasis on how to develop acceptable statistical models, Time Series Data Analysis Using EViews is a perfect complement to theoretical books presenting statistical or econometric models for time series data. The procedures introduced are easily extendible to cross-section data sets. The author: • Provides step-by-step directions on how to apply EViews software to time series data analysis • Offers guidance on how to develop and evaluate alternative empirical models, permitting the most appropriate to be selected without the need for computational formulae • Examines a variety of times series models, including continuous growth, discontinuous growth, seemingly causal, regression, ARCH, and GARCH as well as a general form of nonlinear time series and nonparametric models • Gives over 250 illustrative examples and notes based on the authors own empirical findings, allowing the advantages and limitations of each model to be understood • Describes the theory behind the models in comprehensive appendices • Provides supplementary information and data sets An essential tool for advanced undergraduate and graduate students taking finance or econometrics courses. Statistics, life sciences, and social science students, as well as appliedresearchers, will also find this book an invaluable resource.
