The QLIM Procedure

Syntax: QLIM Procedure

The QLIM procedure is controlled by the following statements:

PROC QLIM options ;
BOUNDS bound1 < , bound2 …> ;
BY variables ;
CLASS variables ;
FREQ variable ;
ENDOGENOUS variables $\sim $ options ;
HETERO dependent variables $\sim $ exogenous variables / options ;
INIT initvalue1 < , initvalue2 …> ;
MODEL dependent variables = regressors / options ;
NLOPTIONS options ;
OUTPUT options ;
RESTRICT restriction1 < , restriction2 …> ;
TEST options ;
WEIGHT variable ;
BAYES <options> ;
PRIOR variables $\sim $ distributions ;

At least one MODEL statement is required. If more than one MODEL statement is used, the QLIM procedure estimates a system of models. If a FREQ or WEIGHT statement is specified more than once, the variable specified in the first instance is used. Main effects and higher-order terms can be specified in the MODEL statement, as in the GLM procedure and PROBIT procedure in SAS/STAT. If a CLASS statement is used, it must precede the MODEL statement.
