NBERCYCLES: Stata module to generate graph command (and optionally graph) timeseries vs. NBER recession dating
nbercycles accesses a copy of the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) record of economic cycles (see http://www.nber.org/cycles.html), the official dating of U.S. business cycle phases: contractions (recessions) and expansions, defined by their peaks and troughs, from 1854-Sep 2010. The ancillary Stata database distributed in the nbercycles package reproduces the data on the NBER web page, and adds quarterly dating information. Given a time-series variable name (and, optionally, a range of dates) nbercycles generates a line graph of the series, superimposed on the shaded NBER-defined recession periods. nbercycles assumes that the recession of December 2007 is still ongoing.
