Collection Mode
  • No hard copy documentation. The actual data used for the project cannot be archived because this would violate disclosure rules at the U.S. Census. The authors have instead included a simulated dataset for use with the software. The data were obtained by taking the Model 2 parameters described in their April 1994 working paper and solving for the equilibrium. They then assumed that the total measure of firms in the model economy was 15737 (the number of observations in the actual Census dataset). From the equilibrium cell fractions they calculated the measure of firms in each cell. They then rounded these measures so they would take on integer values.
