[Gretl-users] VAR/Granger Causality

Thanks for your quick response. I can see the f-stats in the output that are the GC test, but I would like to collect the test statistic in a matrix for further formatting. In a single equation model I would use

matrix matFSTAT = $Fstat

I am running several VAR's in a loop and need to store only these f-stats. My question is only about storing this stat after running var. Any suggestions?

Dear Logan,

GRETL automatically computes Granger causality tests. As stated in the guide: "For each variable in the system an F test is automatically performed, in which the null hypothesis is that no lags of variable j are significant in the equation for variable i. This is commonly known as a Granger causality test". Moreover, there is a short video explaining that on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ON5pJ8xd3E4

which of course does not work but this is the idea of what I need. Is there an easy way to do this?
