LIMDEP is a complete package for estimating and analyzing econometric models. It is primarily oriented toward cross section and panel data. But, most standard problems in time series analysis can be handled as well. Basic procedures for data analysis contained in the program include:

  • descriptive statistics (means, standard deviations, minima, maxima, etc.), with stratification,
  • multiple linear regression and stepwise regression,
  • time series identification, autocorrelations and partial autocorrelations,
  • cross tabulations, histograms, and scatter plots of several types.
LIMDEP is best known for its extensive menu of programs for estimating the parameters of nonlinear models for qualitative and limited dependent variables. (We take our name from LIM ited DEPendent variables.) No other package supports a greater variety of nonlinear econometric models.
