  1. A note on competing risks

    A small note on a statistical result. Some simulations and maximum likelihood estimation with R, Broom and Purrr.

  2. Dynamic Model Averaging Presentation Slides

    Slides summarizing recent investigations into dynamic model averaging and dynamic logistic regression for binary outcomes. Also, code for making slides.

  3. A closer look at forecasting recessions with dynamic model averaging

    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.

  4. Forecasting recessions with dynamic model averaging

    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.
