Richard, I think that you can do that. However, isnīt the default procedure. When I am working with time series, I seek to know if something happened that it caused the shift level. Example: I'm from Brazil and 1999 is important because of the depreciation of the exchange tax. 2002 is important too, because the elections for president, etc. JL 2008/9/14 Richard Harvey <richardharvey2008@googlemail.com>: > Hi, > > Thanks for the link.
