Description Usage Format Details

This dataset covers T = 278 months from 1990 the first two months of 2013. The data include a N x T matrix, y_raw, of raw employment counts, as well as set of standardized values, y, where the standardization is done within state. The standardized data matrix is used in our gpdpgrow and gmrfdpgrow estimating functions because the standardization facilitates comparisons of the time-series across states.
