## Research

### Rank Test Program

In Cragg and Donald (1997) Journal of Econometrics we considered a Minimum Chi Squared type test for the rank of an estimated matrix where the estimator is asymptotically Normal with general covariance matrix. The program that implements the test in Gauss is below.

If you use the program please cite the above mentioned paper.

### Empirical Welfare Analysis

The NSF (SES-0196372) provided research support for the papers below. Gauss programs for testing stochastic dominance up to order 3 also are available below.

## Sydney

### Some Scenes From Sydney (Australia of course)

I grew up somewhere way past that tower on the left.

Here is another view.

As an undergrad I majored in Econometrics at Sydney University - this is a nice part of campus.
