Compute impacts from updated data (news and revisions).
- comparisonarray_like or
An updated dataset with updated and/or revised data from which the news can be computed, or an updated or previous results object to use in computing the news.
A single specific period of impacts from news and revisions to compute. Can also be a date string to parse or a datetime type. This argument cannot be used in combination with start, end, or periods. Default is the first out-of-sample observation.
Observation variable label or slice of labels specifying that only specific impacted variables should be shown in the News output. The impacted variable(s) describe the variables that were affected by the news. If you do not know the labels for the variables, check the endog_names attribute of the model instance.
The first period of impacts from news and revisions to compute. Can also be a date string to parse or a datetime type. Default is the first out-of-sample observation.
The last period of impacts from news and revisions to compute. Can also be a date string to parse or a datetime type. Default is the first out-of-sample observation.
The number of periods of impacts from news and revisions to compute.
Array of exogenous regressors for the out-of-sample period, if applicable.
None, ‘previous’, ‘updated’}
This denotes whether the comparison argument represents a previous results object or dataset or an updated results object or dataset. If not specified, then an attempt is made to determine the comparison type.
- state_indexarray_like or “common”,
An optional index specifying a subset of states to use when constructing the impacts of revisions and news. For example, if state_index=[0, 1] is passed, then only the impacts to the observed variables arising from the impacts to the first two states will be returned. If the string “common” is passed and the model includes idiosyncratic AR(1) components, news will only be computed based on the common states. Default is to use all states.
Whether or not to return only the specific output or a full results object. Default is to return a full results object.
The numerical threshold for determining zero impact. Default is that any impact less than 1e-10 is assumed to be zero.
New observations of quarterly variables, if comparison was provided as an updated monthly dataset. If this argument is provided, it must be a Pandas Series or DataFrame with a DatetimeIndex or PeriodIndex at the quarterly frequency.
