assess_skewness: Tests the skewness of a VAR model

Description

This function tests the skewness for the residuals of the endogenous variables in the specified VAR model. This function uses an implementation equivalent to STATA's sktest. Of the p-levels resulting from assessing the significance of the skewness for the residuals of that variable, the minimum is returned.

Usage

data_matrix <- matrix(nrow = 40, ncol = 3)
data_matrix[, ] <- runif(ncol(data_matrix) * nrow(data_matrix), 1, nrow(data_matrix))
colnames(data_matrix) <- c('rumination', 'happiness', 'activity')
varest <- autovarCore:::run_var(data_matrix, NULL, 1)
autovarCore:::assess_skewness(varest)
