Re: st: How to add Q stats from -wntestq- to -esttab- table (hopefully with -estadd-) |

@Stas -- Thanks for the pointers! I used -estadd- because I wanted to quickly estimate the models and generate the table, although after each estimation I added several lines to find Q, which made it very clunky. I learned enough Stata programming to write my own -estadd- function to add Q. * ----- begin code ----- * my -estadd- function to calculate Box-Ljung Q capture program drop estadd_Q program estadd_Q, eclass tempname residuals predict `residuals', residuals wntestq `residuals' ereturn scalar Q = r(stat) end * get data webuse friedman2, clear generate ln_m1 = ln(m1) * make some models eststo clear eststo: quietly arima DS4.ln_m1, ar(1) ma(2) eststo: quietly arima DS4.ln_m1, ar(1) ma(1/2) eststo: quietly arima DS4.ln_m1, ar(1/2) ma(2) eststo: quietly arima DS4.ln_m1, ar(1/2) ma(1/2) estadd Q : * * and create tables with -esttab- esttab, stats(aic bic Q) noobslast nomtitles * ----- end code ----- It works! Any other suggestions? Thanks!
