How to use SETAR models in gretl

Lampis, F., Díaz-Emparanza, I., Banerjee, A. (2015) How to use SETAR models in gretl. Computational Economics, 46 (2). pp. 231-241. E-ISSN 0927-7099. (doi:10.1007/s10614-014-9445-8) (KAR id:75239)


This paper presents a means for the diffusion of the Self-Exciting Threshold Autoregressive (SETAR) model. Based on the Hansen (Econometrica 68(3):675–603, 2000) methodology, we implement a function in gretl with which estimate a SETAR model. The function is provided with a nice graphical user interface that enables the average user to estimate a SETAR model and make inference easily. The function and its use is presented by means of a case study. In addition we show more functionalities of gretl in order to perform a preliminary analysis of the data.
