# statsmodels.tsa.statespace.tools.validate_vector_shape¶

statsmodels.tsa.statespace.tools.validate_vector_shape(name, shape, nrows, nobs)[source]

Validate the shape of a possibly time-varying vector, or raise an exception

Parameters: name (str) – The name of the vector being validated (used in exception messages) shape (array_like) – The shape of the vector to be validated. May be of size 1 or (if the vector is time-varying) 2. nrows (int) – The expected number of rows (elements of the vector). nobs (int) – The number of observations (used to validate the last dimension of a time-varying vector) ValueError – If the vector is not of the desired shape.
