To search specific datasets or collections, the JRC Data Catalogue opens access to our data.
This tool gives you access to several software packages dedicated to econometric analysis: - PROGRAM GAP: a bivariate model as proposed by K.Kuttner; - PROGRAM DMM: for Bayesian inference in Dynamic Mixture Models; - EEMC: develops sensitivity analysis tools for DYNARE; - BUSY: a software for business cycle analysis; - FLASH: rapid estimates of Quarterly National Account main aggregates; - GLUEWIN: implements the Generalized Likelihood Uncertainty Estimation (GLUE) methodology; - SS-ANOVA-R: estimation of multivariate Smoothing Spline ANOVA models with Recursive algorithms.
