st: Re: RE: Re: RE: Avoiding loops (the while loop)
Thanks David about the suggestion of dummy variables.
Actually I thought about that but the difficulty is that I am using
chronological months, rather than calendar months...
That is, I have monthly observations for 80+ years, and not the 12 calendar
In that case, the number of coefficients is 10*1000*2... (1000 months) and
that makes it very messy.
