Examples

data("USInvest")

## Chapter 3 in Greene (2003)
## transform (and round) data to match Table 3.1
us <- as.data.frame(USInvest)
us$invest <- round(0.1 * us$invest/us$price, digits = 3)
us$gnp <- round(0.1 * us$gnp/us$price, digits = 3)
us$inflation <- c(4.4, round(100 * diff(us$price)/us$price[-15], digits = 2))
us$trend <- 1:15
us <- us[, c(2, 6, 1, 4, 5)]

## p. 22-24
coef(lm(invest ~ trend + gnp, data = us))
coef(lm(invest ~ gnp, data = us))

## Example 3.1, Table 3.2
cor(us)[1,-1]
pcor <- solve(cor(us))
dcor <- 1/sqrt(diag(pcor))
pcor <- (-pcor * (dcor %o% dcor))[1,-1]

## Table 3.4
fm  <- lm(invest ~ trend + gnp + interest + inflation, data = us)
fm1 <- lm(invest ~ 1, data = us)
anova(fm1, fm)
