Sorry, but I'll ask a couple of friends and see if they can help

2017-04-11 21:36:46 UTC

ok the simplest way you can ask them is this: "Do these results indicate that I can reject H0?"

2017-04-11 21:44:14 UTC

You know what, I think the decision rule is Reject H0 if "Prob > F" is greater than "F(#, #)"

2017-04-11 21:44:29 UTC

Which appears to be true

@Koba Tell him this is the output to a Granger Causality Test

2017-04-11 21:46:11 UTC

I did

He's a bit of an autiste so he takes a while to get his thoughts out

2017-04-11 21:48:28 UTC

I see. I'm fairly certain that I can reject H0. Even if I don't know how to explain it using the data, the underlying question is: Is "egg" the cause of "Chicken"

@Nikephoros I wish I could offer help. I used STATA for econometrics as well, but that was nearly 10 years ago.

2017-04-11 21:53:34 UTC

I did my econometrics project on whether baseball player salaries are representative of objective output.

Spoiler alert, they aren't unless you time shift the pay by like 2 years IIRC.

2017-04-11 21:57:41 UTC

@Nikephoros is the > an operator or just an output format?

2017-04-11 21:57:54 UTC

@Koba I really don't know why its formatted "Prob > F", I think it might refer to a critical value of some sort.

2017-04-11 21:57:59 UTC

Maybe not

2017-04-11 21:58:27 UTC

Because I read that as "probability of f = .8903"

2017-04-11 21:58:58 UTC

"Prob of chi2 = .8877"

2017-04-11 21:59:00 UTC

There is nothing special about granger causality versus other hypothesis tests in stata.

2017-04-11 22:00:01 UTC

So what should I interpret these outputs to mean?

2017-04-11 22:00:16 UTC

Reject H0, right?

2017-04-11 22:00:39 UTC
2017-04-11 22:01:01 UTC

2017-04-11 22:01:30 UTC

Ah so I was reading it backwards

2017-04-11 22:01:37 UTC

Yes, I agree with that. I think you have to accept H0 with those numbers because it doesn't meet the confidence interval.

2017-04-11 22:01:53 UTC

FAILYRE TI REJECT

2017-04-11 22:01:56 UTC

!!!

2017-04-11 22:01:57 UTC

As the autiste said, .02 < .95

2017-04-11 22:02:07 UTC

Not accept!

2017-04-11 22:02:07 UTC

Roight

2017-04-11 22:02:19 UTC

Oh yea

2017-04-11 22:02:27 UTC

It's been 10 years

2017-04-11 22:02:28 UTC

Kek

2017-04-11 22:02:36 UTC

I was interpreting it like a p-value

2017-04-11 22:02:41 UTC

Which was my big mistake

2017-04-11 22:02:54 UTC

Easy though. You got the hard work right
