The OUTEST= data set contains estimation results of the fitted model produced by the VARMAX statement. The following output variables can be created:
BY variables
NAME, a character variable that contains the name of the endogenous (dependent) variables or the name of the parameters for the covariance of the matrix of the parameter estimates if you specify the OUTCOV option
TYPE, a character variable that contains the value EST for parameter estimates, the value STD for standard error of parameter estimates, and the value COV for the covariance of the matrix of the parameter estimates if you specify the OUTCOV option
CONST, a numeric variable that contains the estimates of constant parameters and their standard errors
SEASON, a numeric variable that contains the estimates of seasonal dummy parameters and their standard errors, where , and is based on the NSEASON= option
