Dr. Yaffee: as a suggestion for your incoming book "An Introduction to Time Series and Forecasting using Stata", I would say that the stata manual has an outstanding documentation and very good examples that explain very clearly the methodologies implemented, including vector autoregression models. However, when it comes to structural vector autoregression models, you could emphasize the construction of matrices A, B, and C; that can be explained with an example that uses some basic economic theory. In terms of the estimation procedures, the stata manual provides outstanding documentation for vec models too. The exposition of VAR models can be enriched with the discusion of cointegrated VAR models, this topic could be another chapter on your book. Hope it helps and I will be glad to read y our book , Charles -- Charles Koss http://charlesonnet.blogspot.com On Thu, Apr 7, 2011 at 11:53 AM, Robert A Yaffee <bob.yaffee@nyu.edu> wrote: > Jeff, > I'm adding the vector autoregression and structural vector autoregression chapter now. > I've been in charge of our NSF grant while my colleague has been recovering from surgery, > so there has been a delay. > Regards, > Robert > > Robert A.
