For questions and discussion related to graphs, reports, and other output, including issues related to presenting or publishing results.

### BOXJENK output

Working on an example of what happens when you model a nonstationary series as trend stationary. Running this code:

Code: Select all
boxjenk(constant,ar=1,ma=1,define=gdpmodel,regressors,maxl) lgdp startdate enddate
#trend

This is the output:

Why is variable 4 not identified as "trend"?

Thank you.
