How to Run a Regression Using EViews 7

How to Run a Regression Using EViews 7

A quick and easy tutorial of ordinary least squares regression analysis using EViews 7 student version statistical software.

Once your data is imported into EViews, select "Quick" on the top menu bar, then click on "estimate equation". In the box that opens, type in the exact file name of your dependent variable, the letter "c" for the constant term, followed by the names of your independent variables. Press "OK" and the program gives you the results of the OLS regression.

An alternative way to run this regression is to us the command line by typing the letters ls, space, dependent variable name, space, the letter "c", space, the independent variable names with spaces between each. For example, my sample regression in the video is:
ls gdp c cpi m1
Press enter and the same regression results will appear.
