Unemployment Data.

data(unemployment)

A multivariate yearly time series from 1890 to 1979 with variables

- UN
unemployment rate,

- m
broad money supply,

- p
implicit deflator of Gross National Product,

- G
real purchases of goods and services,

- x
real exports.

The data was originally studied by Rea (1983), the data set is given in Krämer and Sonnberger (1986). Below we replicate a few examples from their book. Some of these results differ more or less seriously and are sometimes parameterized differently.
