    sparse time forecast

    Hello to All I have a dataset pertaining to 1980 and 2000. Because I have actual value in 1980 (CR80) and 2000(CR00); I want to make a model that is a forecast for the data point in 2000 using the value in 1980. I want to use covariates from 1980 to predict how good the forecast is. What...

    Tobit model

    Hello, how does the Tobit model treat censored dependent variable data? I have a dataset with zeros that actually stand for non-zero but missing observations. Which is why I don't want them to be viewed as zeros. How does Tobit apply to this?

    I'm trying to test for autocorrelation in the residuals of an AR(p) model. The stata output is: "the exogenous variables may not be collinear with the dependent variables, or their lags" and no results. Can I conclude from this that the residuals are not autocorrelated? Thank for answering...

    developing a statistical prediction rule for success

    Hi, My boss is looking for me to analyze data that we have an past projects and develop a "formula" that will tell how likely a future project is to be a success. We have defined what a success is, so looking at the past data I can find statistics on when projects are successful. Now comes...

    confusion on terminology

    I could use some confirmation or correction on something basic that has been confusing me for a while. It has to do with "normal" and steps in modeling. Normality is for residuals (people already helped me with this in a previous thread) and this comes after fitting a model. In the beginning of...

    ANOVA R code for generalized randomized block design

    Does anyone know how to write R code for an ANOVA using a generalized randomized block design? I have two blocks (random) and three treatments (fixed) each with two reps at each block. I know the RCBD code is aov(object~Block*Trt), but I'm not sure how to specify the error term for the GRBD.
