Program GAP, Version 3.1, Technical Description and User Manual
Program GAP is a program developed by the JRC of the European Commission on request of DG-ECFIN, following the guidelines of Werner Roeger that is gratefully acknowledged. The aim of the program is to decompose a macroeconomic quantity such that GDP or unemployment into long-term and short-term components, the short-term one being identified with output gap or unemployment gap, according to the input series. The program is based on Kutter (1994) bivariate model that involves a Philips-curve regression. Program GAP can be downloaded at www.jrc.cec.eu.int/uasa, following the links Area of Activities - Time Series Analysis - Projects - Gap - Further Information. The program is delivered together with an Excel interface and with a help file for the interface that can be found in the Help worksheet before running the program.
