We analyse the relationship between individuals' subjective wellbeing (SWB) and measures of their country's sustainability. SWB data are sourced from the World Values Survey; sustainability is measured by ecological footprint (EF) and by components of the World Bank's adjusted net savings (ANS) series. ANS, a measure of weak sustainability, represe...

The key aims of this paper are to: (1) to extend the World Bank’s (WB) measure of genuine savings (GS) for New Zealand by using a longer time series of data, 1950–2015; (2) improve GS estimates for New Zealand by adding additional dimensions to GS, i.e. forestry; (3) investigate the relationship between several GS measures and the discounted values...

Recent advances in natural language processing and semantic analysis methods are enabling scholars to analyse text extensively. These techniques have not only minimized the margins of error arising from missing data from a traditionally conducted discourse analysis but also permitted reproducibility of research results. In this paper, we use severa...

Sustainability aims to ensure that people live their lives without compromising the well-being of future generations. Increasing well-being by providing more goods and services to consume is a sustainability challenge. There are two opposing schools of thought on the consumption of natural resources: strong sustainability and weak sustainability. P...

All governments must make a trade-off between running sustainable economic policies and raising the more immediate welfare of their citizens. This trade-off helps to explain why many governments fail to adopt sustainable economic policies even though by doing so they would improve the well-being of future generations. This paper looks at subjective...

Sustainable plans reduce current well-being, though are good long term. All governments must make a trade-off between running sustainable economic policies and raising the more immediate welfare of their citizens. This trade-off helps to explain why many governments fail to adopt sustainable economic policies even though by doing so they would im...

Interdisciplinary research on measuring the progress towards sustainability and well-being (SaW) from different perspectives and in various contexts has developed dramatically over recent decades. This growth in the literature has not only added an enormous number of dimensions to the SaW debate, but the sheer scale of the expansion has challenged...

Both sustainability and well-being (SaW) are interdependent, inter-disciplinary, multi-dimensional, and international subject areas. However, people tend to interpret the subjects significantly differently based on their professional affiliation, academic background, geographical location etc.,(Brunn, 2014; Roberts et al., 2013). A search of the Sa...

In this paper, the electricity shortage in Pakistan is addressed through an examination of data over the period 1971-2010 with a time-series analysis. The novelty of the study lies in characterizing energy shortages using both an index comprising the demands for electricity, gas and oil, and information on the public electricity supply. This index...

We address the causes of electricity shortage in Pakistan by examining data over the period 1971-2010 with time series analysis. The novelty lies in characterizing energy shortage via an index comprising the demands of electricity, gas and oil as well as via the information of public electricity supply. In particular, this index enables a simple em...

Aquatic agricultural systems (AAS) are diverse production and livelihood systems where families cultivate a range of crops, raise livestock, farm or catch fish, gather fruits and other tree crops, and harness natural resources such as timber, reeds, and wildlife. Aquatic agricultural systems occur along freshwater floodplains, coastal deltas, and i...

Hi TS and R gurus,
Is there any way to impliment Elliott–Rothenberg–Stock (ERS) with Hannan-Quinn lag selection criterion in R?
Libraries like fUnitRoots and fSeries have commands for Elliott–Rothenberg–Stock unitroot test. However, I could not find any option where I can use HQIC for automatic lag length selection.
For example, here is what is available:
gnp <- na.omit(nporg[, "gnp.r"])
ers.gnp <- ur.ers(gnp, type="DF-GLS", model="const", lag.max=4)
summary(ers.gnp)
I am after something like:
gnp <- na.omit(nporg[, "gnp.r"])
ers.gnp <- ur.ers(gnp, type="DF-GLS", model="const", lag.max="HQIC")
summary(ers.gnp)
Aim is to get something like attached output produced in Eviews:
Any help in this regard is much appreciated.
