bunchr: bunchr: A Package for Bunching Analysis

Description Main functions See Also


The bunchr package is meant to help analyze bunching. Given a vector of earnings (or any other numeric vector), it creates a counter-factual count histogram and calculates the compensated elasticity of earnings w.r.t. the net-of-tax rate.

Main functions

bunchr has three main functions:


is the main function running the actual analysis.


serves as an aid to the second by visualizing some of theuser-specified options without running an analysis. Use it to see what the histogram of your earnings vector looks like when setting specific bin size, where the counter-factual analysis should be done, and the bounds of the excluded area. You can also save the histogram bins and counts.


is an interactive simulator. Use it to explore bunching simulation and estimation of earning elasticity.
