Are there many features in Eviews that R misses? I have heard that especially when dealing with time series R is less extensive than Eviews. Is this true? Which of the two packages contains most statistical tools (or are they comparable?)?

    $\begingroup$ Comparing the R packages in the time series & econometrics task views to the Eviews feature list should help you. Note that R describes itself as a language & environment for statistical computing & graphics - if you know an algorithm you want to implement, & someone hasn't already done so; you can, building on functions & data types already available. $\endgroup$ – Scortchi Feb 3 '14 at 15:26

  • $\begingroup$ Eviews is a statistic package. Less familiar than R but used by many academics. $\endgroup$ – SmallChess Jul 10 '14 at 2:22
