statsmodels.tsa.statespace.news.NewsResults

class statsmodels.tsa.statespace.news.NewsResults(news_results, model, updated, previous, impacted_variable=None, tolerance=1e-10, row_labels=None)[source]

Impacts of data revisions and news on estimates of variables of interest

Parameters
news_resultsSimpleNamespace instance

Results from KalmanSmoother.news.

modelMLEResults

The results object associated with the model from which the NewsResults was generated.

updatedMLEResults

The results object associated with the model containing the updated dataset.

previousMLEResults

The results object associated with the model containing the previous dataset.

impacted_variablestr, list, array, or slice, optional

Observation variable label or slice of labels specifying particular impacted variables to display in 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.

tolerancefloat, optional

The numerical threshold for determining zero impact. Default is that any impact less than 1e-10 is assumed to be zero.

row_labelsiterable

Row labels (often dates) for the impacts of the revisions and news.
