There are three zip files that contain the RATS and Mathematica code
used to generate the results in "Unemployment Expectations, Jumping (S,s)
Triggers, and Household Balance Sheets" by Chris Carroll and Wendy Dunn.
The zip files are as follows:
CarrollDunn1.zip – the original set of Mathematica
programs for the model in the paper
CarrollDunn2.zip – updated Mathematica code
to solve and simulate a simplified buffer stock model with only nondurables
and two aggregate states
CarrollDunn3.zip – the RATS code used to
generate all of the regression results in the paper, including regressions
on the simulated data from the model as well as regressions on the U.S.
The zip file CarrollDunn1.zip contains a text file called PGMFLOW.TXT; this
provides a rough outline of the Mathematica code and indicates where most
of the functions are defined. The zip file CarrollDunn3.zip contains
a README.TXT file that explains all of the RATS programs.
Use of these files is permitted under the following conditions:
Anyone using these files must include a citation of the paper in his or
Users of the files must not unduly burden the authors with questions about
