Helping people understand the economy, housing and mortgage markets
Let's plot recent U.S. macroeconomic trends with R.
The U.S. isn't building enough homes to meet demand. One reason often cited is a lack of labor. How do construction trends compare to construction employment? Let's take a look.
COME AND MAKE A MAJESTIC MORTGAGE RATE PLOT WITH ME. We'll use R to make a fun plot showing just how low mortgage rates in the U.S. are relative to historical averages.
Let's take a tour of recent house price trends in the United States. We will build an awesome visualization with R and then export it to PowerPoint. From PowerPoint we will make a sweet video.
A trilogy of animated data visualizations showing labor market trends. R code for the data wrangling and plotting bits.
A small note on a statistical result. Some simulations and maximum likelihood estimation with R, Broom and Purrr.
Back we go into the vasty deep. In this post we look closer at using dynamic model averaging and dynamic logistic regression to forecast recessions.
We go into the vasty deep, dipping our toes ever so slightly into the dark waters of macroeconometric forecasting. Here we use dynamic model averaging to forecast recessions with R.
