* Analytical Techniques Demonstrated:
* Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) regression
* Generating variables
* Plotting a graph
*
* Description: We generate log and time variable, run an OLS regression
* with generated variables and generate a graph
*
sample 1 15
* Read the datafile and name the variables - we use the same datafile as in
* Example 6.3
read (data_6.3.shd) expserv expdur expndur pcexp
* Generating a log of expserv
genr lnexs = log(expserv)
* Generating a time index variable
genr T = time(0)
* Running an OLS regression of lnexs on T, stating that it is a log-linear
* model, stating to show residual statistics and saving predicted values
* in a variable plnexs
ols lnexs T / rstat loglin predict=plnexs
* Creating a plot of plnexs against T
graph plnexs T
