Type in the following to get a Q-Q plot and a histogram on top of each other**The Dancing Economist**, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers]. (You can report issue about the content on this page here)Want to share your content on R-bloggers? click here if you have a blog, or here if you don't.

*par(mfrow=c(2,1))*

*> hist(dlGDP,prob=T,12)*

*> lines(density(dlGDP))*

*> qqnorm(dlGDP)*

*> qqline(dlGDP)*

the top graph says that the errors are pretty nicely distributed around the mean

and the bottom says that they are normal. Ficcissimo!

We can take a look at the correlations between the lags with the following code:

l

*ag.plot(dlGDP,9,do.lines=F)*

Holy crap- there is strong correlation! This will help give us an idea as to what model we end up choosing.

My guide for this has been the following website:
