In the examplebelow, -robvar- applied to the residuals of a single modelshows that the forecast performance of the model deteriorates after1987q3. Running separate subperiod regressions confirms this:the model produces more accurate forecasts in the earlier period.Yet the R^2 is higher in the later subperiod! I would be moreinterested in the model's accuracy, in terms of forecast confidenceintervals, than I would in R^2.use http://fmwww.bc.edu/cfb/data/usmacro1,clear reg d.cpi d.oilprice d.wage, robust predict double res if e(sample) g break = (tin(1987q3,)) robvar res, by(break) reg d.cpi d.oilprice d.wage if !break, robust reg d.cpi d.oilprice d.wage if break, robust
