To compute forecasts. etc. First a number of assumptions of the model have to be formulated after which the unknown parameters will be estimated. This concern s detenninistic assumptions as weU as stochastic assumptions. By using the estimates, the validity of the assumptions will be tested. If some of them are rejected then the model has to be reformulated. This process can be characterised by the foll owing scheme of stages in an empirical research project. All the points mentioned will be discussed in foll owing chapters.

After these two parts have been studied you will know whether arnot OLS may be applied as an estimator of the parameters, because the properties of this estimator will be known. You will also be able to estimate and test si mple linear equations, with exogenous and lagged explanatory variables (for time-series data), in a correct way. Part n providesa lot of insight into many aspects of thi s linear model.

The tran sformations d(log(pcoeoa)) or dlog(pcocoa) yield the first differences of the logarithms of the cocoa price in the model. Other manipulations with objects can be found under ' Objects' in the upper toolbar: for example, the option 'Delete'. As mentioned earlier, ' Delete' is also found in the toolbar of the workfile, and the right-hand mouse button can also be used. Not only transformed variables but also scalars can be computed.
