EViews (Econometric Views[citation needed]) is a statistical package for Windows, used mainly for time-series oriented econometric analysis. It is developed by Quantitative Micro Software (QMS), now a part of IHS. Version 1.0 was released in March 1994, and replaced MicroTSP.[1] The TSP software and programming language had been originally developed by Robert Hall in 1965. The current version of EViews is 10, released in June 2017.

Features[edit]

EViews can be used for general statistical analysis and econometric analyses, such as cross-section and panel data analysis and time series estimation and forecasting.

EViews combines spreadsheet and relational database technology with the traditional tasks found in statistical software, and uses a Windows GUI. This is combined with a programming language which displays limited object orientation.

The Enterprise edition of EViews allows access to 3rd party time series data from multiple providers including:[2] Thomson Reuters Datastream, FactSet,[3] Moody's Economy.com, Macrobond Financial,[4] Haver Analytics,[5] and CEIC.

Data formats[edit]

EViews relies heavily on a proprietary and undocumented file format for data storage. However, for input and output it supports numerous formats, including databank format, Excel formats, PSPP/SPSS, DAP/SAS, Stata, RATS, and TSP. EViews can access ODBC databases. EViews file formats can be partially opened by gretl.

Stationarity of data[edit]

To check unit root in data series, EViews is a great source of help. Multiple unit root tests are available in the research software including Dickey-Fuller and Philip-Perron (very popular).
