The vecrank command in Stata 11.1 allows for seasonal indicators with the sindicators option.
I used to use RATS several years ago, then switched to PcGive (OxMetrics) for dynamic linear systems modelling. Easier to teach from, too.
My students have used JMulti for SVARs in their Master's theses.

Good to know. In addition to that, VECRANK command does not allow the inclussion of seasonal terms as well as structural breaks either in levels or trend.

The following is worth reading about what is needed in Stata:
Yafee, R.A  2007. Stata 10 (Time Series and Forecasting). Journal of Statistical Software. 23(1):1-18.
http://www.jstatsoft.org/v23/s01/paper

In conclusion, it seems to me that Stata is heading to a different market of researchers (stat. methods) than Eviews or Rats or open source such as Jmulti or GRETL.

Sincerely,

Charles

So, those estimates are useless since WE DO NEED the standard errors for interpreting the results STATISTICALLY. I was amazed to learn that OPEN SOURCE software can do that job very efficiently. I would like to see this feature in STATA 12.
