Using gret l for Principles of Econometrics, 4th Edition

Reporting Results

In case you think gretl is just a toy, the program includes a very capable utility that enables it to produce professional looking output. LTeX, usually pronounced “Lay-tek”, is a typesetting pro­gram used by mathematicians and scientists to produce professional looking technical documents. It is widely used by econometricians to prepare manuscripts for wider distribution. In fact, this book is produced using LTeX.

Although LTeX is free and produces very professional looking documents, it is not widely used by undergraduate and masters students because 1) most degree programs don’t require you to write a lot of technical papers and 2) it’s a computer language and therefore it takes some time to learn its intricacies and to appreciate its nuances. Heck, I’ve been using it for years and still scratch my head when I try to put tables and Figures in the places I’d like them to be!

In any event, gretl includes a facility for producing output that can be pasted directly into LTeX documents. For users of LTeX, this makes generating regression output in proper format a breeze. If you don’t already use LTeX, then this will not concern you. On the other hand, if you already use it, gretl can be very handy in this respect.

In Figure 4.3 you will notice that on the far right hand side of the menu bar is a pull-down menu

for LTeX - From here, you click LaTeX on the menu bar and a number of options are revealed as shown in Figure 4.14. You can view, copy, or save the regression output in either tabular form or

Simulation

In appendix 10F of POE4, the authors conduct a Monte Carlo experiment comparing the performance of OLS and TSLS. The basic simulation is based on the model y = x …

Hausman Test

The Hausman test probes the consistency of the random effects estimator. The null hypothesis is that these estimates are consistent-that is, that the requirement of orthogonality of the model’s errors …

Time-Varying Volatility and ARCH Models: Introduction to Financial Econometrics

In this chapter we’ll estimate several models in which the variance of the dependent variable changes over time. These are broadly referred to as ARCH (autoregressive conditional heteroskedas - ticity) …
