# [STATA - Lag length criteria]: How can I explain the results?

Good evening everyone.
I got different output from the code:
Code:
forval i = 1/118 {
varsoc Illiqi', maxlag(10)
}`
that describes AIC,BIC,... lag information criterion, but I don't know how I can interpret them.
How can I choose the correct number of lags on the basis of all these output?
I know that, in the case in which I have only one variable, I've to choose the smallest value of AIC and the others, but what I have to do in the case I have more outputs?
Thanks for helping!
