You can use the drop-down lists to list all of the example programs from a particular text book, and see links to more information on each book (where available).

Use the regular textbook browser instead if you want to search/filter examples from all available textbooks.

This page provides links to example programs for:
Econometric Modelling with Time Series: Specification, Estimation and Testing ,

The Zip file listed first in the table below includes all the sample programs, data files (when available), and, in some cases, files containing RATS procedures used by the examples. If you want to run any of the examples, you should download the Zip file. There may also be zip files for earlier editions of the text. If there are, those most likely are for earlier versions of the RATS software.

If you prefer just to view the code for a particular example, just click on the example name. Again, if you actually want to run these, you should download the zip file listed first to get the required data and procedure files.

Note that all of the textbook example, data, and procedure files currently available on our website are also included on the distribution (CD or download) with the current release of the RATS software.
