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 and runs from 1959:1 to 1995:1. This corresponds to 145 observations. The source of the data is Citibank.

##load Hoover and Perez (1999) data:
data(hpdata)

##make quarterly data-matrix of zoo type:
newhpdata <- zooreg(hpdata[,-1], start=c(1959,1), end=c(1995,1), frequency=4)

##plot data:
plot(newhpdata)

##transform data to log-differences in percent:
dloghpdata <- diff(log(newhpdata))*100

##plot log-differenced data:
plot(dloghpdata)
