Data used by Hoover and Perez (1999) in their evaluation of General-to-Specific (GETS) modelling. A detailed description of the data is found in their Table 1 (page 172). The data are quarterly, comprise 20 variables (the first variable is the quarterly index) and runs from 1959:1 to 1995:1. This corresponds to 145 observations. The original source of the data is Citibank.
a factor that contains the (quarterly) dates of the observations
index of four coincident indicators
GNP price deflator
government purchases of goods and services
federal purchases of goods and services
federal government receipts
disposable personal income
gross private domestic investment
total member bank reserves
monetary base (feredal reserve bank of St. Louis)
Dow Jones stock price
Moody's AAA corporate bond yield
labour force (16 years+, civilian)
unfilled orders (manufacturing, all industries)
new orders (manufacturing, all industries)
personal consumption expenditure
The data have been used for comparison and illustration of GETS model selection in several studies of the GETS methodology, including Hendry and Krolzig (1999, 2005), Doornik (2009) and Sucarrat and Escribano (2012).
