This provides a convenient way for RATS users to discuss programming ideas and econometric issues, share examples and procedures, and exchange ideas. The support staff at Estima are active participants; they often post code and examples on the forums before they appear anywhere else, and make an effort to respond to questions when possible.


Messages posted there continue to remain visible, making it easier for newcomers to find answers to previously asked questions as well as posted sample code, procedures, announcements, and other information. Searching the forum for the author(s) of a paper may be the quickest way to find information.
