scikits.statsmodels 0.2.0

Statistical computations and models for use with SciPy

Latest Version: 0.3.1

Statsmodels is a python package that provides a complement to scipy for
statistical computations including descriptive statistics and
estimation of statistical models.

scikits.statsmodels provides classes and functions for the estimation of
several categories of statistical models. These currently include linear
regression models, OLS, GLS, WLS and GLS with AR(p) errors, generalized
linear models for six distribution families, M-estimators for robust
linear models, and regression with discrete dependent variables, Logit,
Probit, MNLogit, Poisson, based on maximum likelihood estimators.
An extensive list of result statistics are avalable for each estimation

Main Changes in 0.2.0

* Improved documentation and expanded and more examples
* Added four discrete choice models: Poisson, Probit, Logit, and Multinomial Logit.
* Added PyDTA. Tools for reading Stata binary datasets (*.dta) and putting
them into numpy arrays.
* Added four new datasets for examples and tests.
* Results classes have been refactored to use lazy evaluation.
* Improved support for maximum likelihood estimation.
* bugfixes
* renames for more consistency
RLM.fitted_values -> RLM.fittedvalues
GLMResults.resid_dev -> GLMResults.resid_deviance


We are continuing to work on support for systems of equations models, panel data
models, time series analysis, and information and entropy econometrics in the
sandbox. This code is often merged into trunk as it becomes more robust.
