How do I use custom points in time in the Slice analysis?

  1. Set the reference dates (e.g., 1929-09-01) at “Custom points in time”.  
  2. Then set the number of observations (e.g., 3000) you want,  
  3. Specify how you want the observations distributed relative to the date:

After: include 1929-09-01 and 3000 subsequent observations 

Aroundinclude 1929-09-01 and 1250 observations before and after that point 

Before: include 1929-09-01 and 2500 observations before that point.
