1 Problem Set 3 Note: This assignment must be done with GRETL for full credit. Use the data disk from Pindyck and Rubinfeld to complete the assignment. Due: July 9 th , 2009. 1. Use file EX32 on the PR data disk to calculate the mean, standard deviation, and skewness of Personal Consumption Expenditures (GC). Plot the GC histogram and non-parametric kernel density. Summary Statistics, using the observations 1954:1 - 1995:2 for the variable GC (166 valid observations) Mean Median Minimum Maximum 1578.29 950.450 236.400 4851.03 Std. Dev. C.V.
