## How To Incorporate Dummy Variables In Vars

###### Lecture 13 Use and Interpretation of Dummy Variables

Dummy variables – where the variable takes only one of two values – are useful tools in econometrics, since often interested in variables that are qualitative rather than quantitative In practice this means interested in variables that split the sample into two distinct groups in the following way D = 1 if the criterion is satisfied D = 0 if not Eg. Male/Female so that the dummy variable ...

###### Use of Dummy Variables in Regression Analysis

Dummy variables assign the numbers ‘0’ and ‘1’ to indicate membership in any mutually exclusive and exhaustive category. 1. The number of dummy variables necessary to represent a single attribute variable is equal to the number of levels (categories) in that variable minus one. 2. For a given attribute variable, none of the dummy variables constructed can be redundant. That is, one ...

###### Chapter 11 Indicator Variables

Indicator Variables In this chapter, 0-1 indicator or “dummy” variables are used to incorporate segment differences, shocks, or structural shifts into models. With cross sectional data, indicators can be used to incorporate the unique responses of particular groups or segments. With time series data, indicators can be used to account for external shocks or structural shifts. Indicators ...

###### var — Vector autoregressive models

A VAR is a model in which K variables are speciﬁed as linear functions of p of their own lags, p lags of the other K 1 variables, and possibly exogenous variables. A VAR with p lags is usually denoted a VAR(p). For more information, see[TS] var intro. Example 1: VAR model To illustrate the basic usage of var, we replicate the example inLutkepohl¨ (2005, 77–78). The data consists of three ...

###### Divergence and Curl of a Vector Function

Physical Interpretation of the Curl Consider a vector field F that represents a fluid velocity: The curl of F at a point in a fluid is a measure of the rotation of the fluid. If there is no rotation of fluid anywhere then ?x F = 0. Such a vector field is said to be irrotational or conservative. For a 2D flow with F represents the fluid velocity, ?x F is perpendicular to the motion and ...
