SBBQ: Stata module to implement the Harding and Pagan (2002) business cycle dating algorithm
sbbq identifies potential turning points as the local minima and maxima in the series. Candidate points must then satisfy two conditions: phases are at least 'p' quarters long, and complete cycles are at least 'c quarters long---where 'p' and 'c' are chosen parameters. This "BBQ" algorithm was proposed by Harding and Pagan (2002) as a quarterly ("Q") implementation of the original Bry and Boschan (1971) ("BB") monthly algorithm.
