makeresids |

Create residual series.

Creates and saves residuals in the workfile from an estimated equation object.

Syntax

equation_name.makeresids(options) [res1]

Follow the equation name with a period and the makeresids keyword, then provide a name to be given to the stored residual.

Options

o (default) | Ordinary residuals. |

s | Standardized residuals (available only after weighted estimation and GARCH, binary, ordered, censored, and count models). |

g (default for ordered models) | Generalized residuals (available only for binary, ordered, censored, and count models). |

prompt | Force the dialog to appear from within a program. |

Examples

equation eq1.ls y c m1 inf unemp

eq1.makeresids res_eq1

estimates a linear regression of Y on a constant, M1, INF, UNEMP, and saves the residuals as a series named RES_EQ1.
