PcGive Professional

PcGive Professionaltm aims to give an operational and structured approach to econometric modelling using the most sophisticated yet user-friendly software. The accompanying books transcend the old ideas of `textbooks' and `computer manuals' by linking the learning of econometric methods and concepts to the outcomes achieved when they are applied.

The econometric techniques of the PcGive system can be divided by the type of data to which they are (usually) applied. The documentation is comprised of three volumes, and the overview below gives in parenthesis whether the method is described in Volume I, II, III or V. Volume IV refers to the PcNaive book.

PcGive uses OxMetrics for data input and graphical and text output. OxMetrics has its own help system. Even though PcGive is largely written in Ox Professional, it does not require Ox to function.

The PcGive system

PcGivetm uses OxMetrics for data input and graphical and text output, and is part of the OxMetrics family.

OxMetricstm is the name of a family of software packages providing an integrated solution for those requiring econometric analysis of time series, financial econometric modelling, or statistical analysis of cross-section and panel data. The core packages of the family are OxMetrics, which provides the user-interface, data handling, and graphics, and Ox Professional, which provides the implementation language.

OxMetricstm (version 6) is the front-end for all the members of the OxMetrics family. OxMetrics displays reports and graphics, which can be manipulated on screen, offers a calculator and algebraic language for transforming data, and enables the user to open multiple databases. A batch language allows for the automation of many of these tasks. OxMetrics provides nearly 50 types of graphs, ranging from time-series plots to cross-plots, ACF, density, 3-D plots, automatic graphing of logs and growth rates, seasonal subplots, error fans and many others.
