Is there supposed to be something here? All I see is a link that takes me to an add for a conference.

Hi Jennifer,

I'm having no luck in finding the actual link to the video.  Here's a little screencast to show you what I'm seeing.

Is ETS even part of SAS university edition? I learned all of my econometrics using Stata. I want to learn how to carryout the same procedures using SAS. However, it seems like Proc Model, Proc Autoreg, and other important econometrics procedures are not part of the university edition. Or is there a way to install the ETS features?

No, It's pretty clear that SAS decided not to include ETS in the University Edition.  Since I teach Econometrics as well as Intro Stat, this makes it far less likely that I'd use the UE,  It would work well for Intro, but not econometrics.  Time series models (Proc ARIMA) are now essential in an econometrics course.
