Abstract

In this paper, we have exposed the data checking problem in the context of the econometric software development. We have based our presentation on the development of our SIMUL multidimensional econometric software. We have shown that this problem is particularly important when one develops multi-dimensional econometric software. Then, we have briefly recalled the principle of the main arithmetical and managerial techniques available to deal with this problem. Finally, we have presented the data checking procedures we have conceived based on a fictive data encoding technique. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media New York 2015
