avg.pair.cc {BGVAR}  R Documentation 
Computes average pairwise crosssectional correlations of the data and the country models' residuals.
avg.pair.cc(object, digits=3)
object 
Either an object of class 
digits 
Number of digits that should be used to print output to the console. 
If used for analyzing the country models' residuals, avg.pair.cc
computes for each country and a given variable, the average crosssectional correlation (either for the data or for the residuals). In theory, including foreign variables should soak up crosssectional residual dependence and correlation of the residuals should be small. Otherwise dynamic analysis, especially using GIRFs, might lead to invalid results. See Dees et al. (2007) for more details.
