Unlike IBM SPSS, Eviews does not offer the options of stepwise entry or backward removal of variables when running regression. However, you could include all the variables in EViews and eliminate the non-significant variables one by one until only the significant ones remain. The main advantage of running regression in EViews is that formal testing procedures exist for testing hypotheses concerning the residuals.
