, shape, nrows, nobs)[source]

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

  • 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.
