The B34S ProSeries Econometric System is a full-featured data analysis software that is available for personal computers and unix workstations. It provides comprehensive capabilities that encompass a variety of cross-sectional and time series modeling methods. Advanced users will also appreciate the ability to customize user-defined procedures and routines through the generalized matrix programming environment capabilities and the flexible program control language provided in the ProSeries Econometric System.

B34S has two-way links with SCA, SAS, SPEAKEASY, and RATS and can make data loading command files for EXCEL, MATLAB, MINITAB, SHAZAM, LIMDEP and many more systems. B34S contains a user-extendable help facility. B34S menus under the Display Manager on the PC are developed using the B34S MAKEMENU command. This facility makes them user-extendable, since they are just B34S programs. Libraries of templates are supplied for most tasks. On the PC, B34S contains a data viewer, an output and log viewer, and an editor.

B34S versions run on 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7, Vista, and XP operating system. The Windows versions have a graphical front end (Display Manager) and high-resolution graphic capability that includes line plots, 2D and 3D histograms, bar plots, contour plots and 3D surface plots. The user has the choice of either supplying the 3D surface in the form of a matrix or letting B34S determine the surface from three vectors. This latter capability allows the user to visualize the data in a 3D world before deciding on an estimation strategy.
