Re: st: ARMA(1,1) with Multiple Panels
Thank you, this was quite helpful.
However, I understand that conditional MLE is inappropriate for a
nonstationary series, so that it would not be a good idea to use the
"condition" option. If my series is nonstationary, what alternatives
would I have for estimating an ARMA(1,1) with multiple panels?
