Abstract

Our contribution in this work is to set the directions for specialized econometric computations in a free computer algebra system, Xcas. We focus on the programming of a routine dedicated to correlation criteria for multiple regression models. We program several operations for detecting and evaluating collinearity by applying the diagnostic techniques of linear regression analysis. Xcas could constitute a supplemental tool in a collinear data study. Its use is proposed complementary to established econometric software or as substitute software.
