ARCH & GARCH Models in Time Series
Conventional time series analysis procedures assume that the variance of the random (error) terms inthe series is constant over time. In practice, however, certain series, especially in the financial domain,exhibit volatility with different levels of variance in different periods. In order to capture and model thisphenomenon, Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity (ARCH) models have been developed.Here the variance at each point of the series is modeled using the past disturbances in the series. TheARCH model generally requires a large number of parameters to successfully capture the dynamics ofthe error variance. The Generalized Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity (GARCH) model, byintroducing additional autoregressive terms of the error variance helps achieve parameter parsimony inthe modeling.
SYSTAT 13’s Time Series Analysis update provides the following:
– Hypothesis tests for ARCH effects: Well‐known McLeod and Lagrange Multiplier tests areprovided for this purpose.
– Estimation of ARCH and GARCH model parameters by different implementations (BHHH, BFGS,and Newton‐Raphson) of the maximum likelihood method with various options for convergencecriteria.
– Forecasts for error variances using the parameter estimates.
– The Jarque‐Bera test for normality of errors.
Best Subsets Regression
In the development of a multiple (linear) regression model, it would be nice if the number of predictorsin the model developed is small without sacrificing predictive power. The best subsets regressionaddresses this issue.
– SYSTAT 13 finds best models (choice of predictors) for a given number of predictors, the numbervarying from one to the total number available in the data set.
– The best model is identified by various criteria such as R2, Adjusted R2, Mallow’s Cp, MSE, AIC,AICC and BIC.
– SYSTAT 13 then offers to carry out a complete regression analysis on the data set chosen by theuser (same as the training set or different) on the best model selected by any of the criteria.
Confirmatory Factor Analysis
The Factor Analysis feature in SYSTAT 13 now includes Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA).
– CFA can be used to test the postulated factor structure based on a priori knowledge about therelationship between the observed (manifest) variables and the latent variables.
– With CFA, SYSTAT allows users to specify the observed variables, a set of latent variables, andtheir variance‐covariance structure.
– A path diagram can be used to specify the hypothesized model.
– SYSTAT 13 estimates the parameters of the CFA model using one of the following estimationoptions: Maximum likelihood, Generalized least‐squares, and Weighted least‐squares.
– SYSTAT 13 provides a wide of variety of goodness‐of‐fit indices to measure the degree ofconformity of the postulated factor model to the data. Some of the well‐known indicesprovided are: Goodness‐of‐Fit Index (GIF), Root Mean Square Residual (RMR), Parsimonious
Goodness‐of‐ fit Index (PGFI), AIC, BIC, McDonald’s measure of Certainty, and Non‐normal FitIndex (NNFI).
Environment Variables in Basic
StatisticsSYSTAT 13 provides environment variables in its Basic Statistics module.
– Environment variables are variables that contain the computed values of various statistics for agiven session, a given data file, and given variables.
– These may be directly used in subsequent transformation statements for further processing ofthe computed statistics.
SYSTAT 13 provides a direct computation of polynomial regression on a single independent variable. Thekey features are:
– The order of the polynomial can be up to 8.
– Besides fitting polynomials in standard forms, SYSTAT 13 provides orthogonal polynomialregression.
– SYSTAT 13 reports goodness‐of fit‐statistics (R2 and adjusted R2) and ANOVA with p‐values for allmodels, starting from the order specified by the user, down to linear (order = 1).
– SYSTAT 13 provides confidence and prediction interval plots along with estimates, and a plot ofresiduals versus predicted values, as Quick Graphs.
Analysis of Variance
The Analysis of Variance feature now provides:
– Levene’s test based on median for testing homogeneity of variances.
– A SUBCAT command that categorizes the desired factors just for the purpose of the analysis.
The Basic Statistics updates in SYSTAT 13 consist of:
– Standard error and confidence interval for the trimmed mean.
– Winsorized mean, its standard error and confidence interval.
– Sample mode and mode based on kernel density estimate of data.
– Interquartile rangeAll these statistics are available for columns as well as rows.
In most statistical analysis features, SYSTAT has been providing resampling facilities, including bootstrap, whereby the same analysis is carried out on each of the samples and complete outputs produced for each of them. SYSTAT has recently been providing, in a few features, analysis of the bootstrap outputs, summarizing the key parts of the outputs by histograms, computing various types of bootstrap estimates, their biases, standard errors, confidence intervals, and p‐values. In SYSTAT 13, this facility is added to Hypothesis Testing and enhanced in Least‐Squares Regression.
– In Hypothesis Testing, SYSTAT 13 provides bootstrap‐based p‐values and histograms of the test statistic obtained from the bootstrap samples. Apart from the usual p‐values of the tests, users can now request bootstrap‐based p‐values in all tests for mean (one‐sample z, one‐sample t, two‐ sample z, two‐sample t, paired t, Poisson) and variance (single variance, two ariances and several variances)
– In Least‐Squares Linear Regression, a choice of bootstrapping residuals has been included.
Bootstrap estimates of the regression coefficients, their biases, standard errors, and confidence intervals are then computed based on these.
Updates provided in the Crosstabulation (XTAB) feature include the following:
– Relative Risk: In a 2 x 2 table, the relative risk is the ratio of the proportions of cases having a ‘positive’ outcome in the two groups defined by row or column. Relative Risk is a common measure of association for dichotomous variables.
– Mode: SYSTAT 13 gives an option to list only the first N categories in a one‐way table (frequency distribution). This is done by adding a MODE = N option to the PLENGTH command within XTAB.
– Saved results with:
– all requested columns in Multiway: Standardize
– value labels of the input variables for the corresponding columns of the saved results file
– Output categorized appropriately based on the type of table, and reorganized table of measures.
SYSTAT 13 performs the estimation of parameters using the maximum likelihood method for the following distributions:
– Negative Binomial
– The Hypothesis Testing feature has been strengthened by adding tests for mean vectors of multivariate data.
– One‐sample Hotelling’s T2 test for mean vector of multivariate data equal to a known vector.
– Two‐sample Hotelling’s T2 test for equality of two mean vectors of multivariate data.
– For two‐sample z, two‐sample t, and test for two variances, users can now directly input data in a layout where the data across the samples appear in different columns. This is in addition to the current indexed layout.
Least Squares Regression
SYSTAT 13 allows you to save standard errors and confidence intervals obtained from Least Squares Regression.
SYSTAT 13 offers more intuitive ways of analyzing binary, multinomial, conditional, and discrete choice models. Specifically:
– Simplified and easy user interface and command line structure to analyze binary, multinomial, conditional, and discrete choice models separately.
– Option to specify the reference level for the binary and multinomial response models.
– Simpler form of input data to analyze matched sample case‐control studies with one case and any number of controls per set.
– For Discrete choice models, SYSTAT 13 provides two data layouts: ‘Choice set’ and ‘By choice’ to model an individual’s choices in response to the characteristics of the choices.
– In the ‘Choice set’ layout, choice set names for groups of variables can be defined, and variables can be created, edited, or deleted.
– In the ‘By choice’ framework, the choices sets already defined can be used in the data for the analyses.
Updates in Nonparametric tests are:
– Jonckeere‐Terpstra test as an alternative to Mann‐Whitney test: The test is used when the treatments are ordered in terms of the response. This test is based on the sum of the k(k‐1)/2 Mann‐Whitney counts (for k treatments).
– Fligner‐Wolfe test as an alternative to Mann‐Whitney test: The test is used when one of the treatments acts as a control, to test equality of response to control vis‐a‐vis all other treatments, with a one‐sided alternative. This is a Mann‐Whitney test with two groups when the control is one group and all other treatments together form another.
– Post hoc (multiple comparisons) tests of Dwass‐Steel‐Critchlow‐Fligner and of Conover‐Inman which can be used as a follow‐up when a Kruskal‐Wallis test shows significance.
– The Dwass‐Steel‐Critchlow‐Fligner test is based on an asymptotic Studentized range distribution.
– The Conover‐Inman test is based on asymptotic Student’s t‐distribution.
– A multiple comparison test due to Conover as a follow‐up of Friedman test showing significance.
