This repository contains the material necessary to replicate the empirical application in: 'Regularized Estimation of Structural Instability in Factor Models: The US Macroeconomy and the Great Moderation'.

Required packages

The parsimonious package from the eponymous repository is required for the estimation and the macrods package provides the data:

library('devtools')
install_github('lcallot/parsimonious')
library('parsimonious')
install_github('johannestang/macrods')
library('macrods')

In addition the following packages should be installed : ggplot2, reshape2, xtable, , and zoo, all available from CRAN.

/application

  • FactorApp.R estimates the models and produces all output.
  • Libs.R contains helper functions.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
