OxMetrics Desktop

OxMetricstm is the `desktop' for the OxMetrics modules. OxMetrics displays reports and graphics, which can be manipulated on screen, offers a calculator and algebraic language for transforming data, and enables the user to open multiple databases. A batch language allows for the automation of many of these tasks.

Ox Professional

Ox Professionaltm provides the full functionality. It can be used with an editor such as OxEdit, but also provides full integration with OxMetrics. When running within OxMetrics, graphs and output appear there, and can be edited on screen. The included OxPack program allows many third-party packages to be run interactively, using data that is loaded into OxMetrics. is the command-line

Ox Console

Ox Consoletm is the command-line version. Ox programs are written in an editor (such as OxEdit) and run from a command-prompt (console/terminal/command prompt) window or from inside the editor. In comparison with Ox Professional, Ox Console lacks the interaction with OxMetrics (so cannot show graphs, and cannot run the GUI versions of Ox Packages). Ox Console can be used for free under certain conditions, see here.

PcGive Professionaltm aims to give an operational and structured approach to econometric modelling using the most sophisticated yet user-friendly software.

The econometric techniques of PcGive include: VAR, cointegration, simultaneous equations models, Markov Switching, ARFIMA, logit, probit, GARCH modelling, static and dynamic panel data models, X12ARIMA, and more.
PcGive uses Autometricstm for automatic model selection.
