M. Ooms, J.A. Doornik

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademic


We give a short international history of econometric software development, with an emphasis on the origin of the main existing econometric packages. We provide a Dutch perspective on this development. We identify the characteristics of econometric software in comparison with mathematical and statistical software. Finally, a number of recent developments connected with the reuse of code across econometric softwares are discussed. © VVS, 2006.
