Abstract: gcause performs a Granger causality test on time-series data to investigate whether lagged values of one variable help in forecasting another variable. This routine should be preferred to an earlier, problematic Granger-test routine which appeared in STB-51. Version gcause2 (CFBaum, Apr2010) allows the routine to be applied to a single unit of a panel using an if qualifier.
