EViews Introduction
23rd - 24th February 2017
4th - 5th May 2017
Berlin, Germany

This two day training covers the basic concepts of econometrics and time series analysis.

The course is aimed for anyone who has just started to learn EViews software.The focus lies on linear regression analysis in the context of time series.

At the same time EViews is introduced. EViews is the number-one software for time series analysis. It is easy to learn and easy to use. Thus it will support you in finding the right econometric models and make the most out of them.

  • Introduction to EViews
  • Basic features of EViews
  • Answering economic problems with statistical tools
  • Perform simple, multiple and non-linear regression
  • Regression diagnostics
  • Validate the assumptions of statistical methods
  • Set up and interpret time series models in EViews
  • Estimate non-stationary time series

Requirements: Basic statistical knowledge is usefull but not required. No knowledge of EViews is required.

EViews - Scripting
10th March 2017
19th May 2017
Berlin, Germany

This one day course is all about the EViews scripting language. Starting with simple functions (data import, object declaration, ...) the participant becomes familiar with the typical syntax of the EViews scripting language.

The next step is to discuss the typical aspects of a programming language: loops, conditional statements, vectors and matrices. The training will cover database-access as well as graph customization and many real world examples.

  • Automatic data import
  • Overview over objects and commands
  • Loops and conditional statements
  • Database access
  • Vectors and matrices
  • Graph customization

EViews Modelling: Complex Models
2nd - 3rd March 2017
10th - 11th May 2017
Berlin, Germany

This course is intended for those who already have collected some experiences with EViews. Model specification and validation are at heart of the course in the context of models within and beyond the standard linear (multiple) regression framework. Besides the classical AR, MA, ARMA, ARDL modelling techniques, more advanced topics such as Simultaneous Equations Models (SEM), Vector Autoregression Models (VAR), Vector Error Correction Models (VEC) and Generalized Linear Models (GLM) will be covered.

This two-day-course is an advanced training for the analysis of economic time series data. We start with a recap of basic time series analysis and dynamic models in form of linear regression and ARIMA-models.

As a generalisation of that multivariate regression models and systems of equations are discussed. Vector-Autoregressive (VAR) and Vector-Error-Correction-Models (VEC) are part of the training as a special case of systems of equations.

Final part of the training describes ways to model volatility of time series in form of Autoregressive Conditional Heteroscedasticity-models (ARCH, GARCH).

  • AR, MA and ARIMA models
  • ARDL – Dynamic regression models
  • Systems of Equations
  • VAR – and VEC-models
  • ARCH – and GARCH-models

Requirements: Participants should have a basic understanding of hypothesis testing, regression analysis and time series analysis in general.
