Program and Data Files

This program replicates the empirical work reported in the above paper.

It contains a set of procedures for estimation and testing in threshold models. The procedures estimate a threshold regression by least squares, compute confidence intervals for the parameters, and provide asymptotic simulation tests of the null of linearity against the alternative of a threshold.
