Measuring business cycles: A wavelet analysis of economic time series

Author

  • Yogo, Motohiro

Abstract

Multiresolution wavelet analysis is a natural way to decompose an economic time series into trend, cycle, and noise. The method is illustrated with GDP data. The business-cycle component of the wavelet-filtered series closely resembles the series filtered by the approximate bandpass filter.
