US Investment Data

Description

US data for fitting an investment equation.

Usage

data(Investment)

Format

An annual time series from 1963 to 1982 with 7 variables.

GNP

nominal gross national product (in billion USD),

Investment

nominal gross private domestic investment (in billion USD),

Price

price index, implicit price deflator for GNP,

Interest

interest rate, average yearly discount rate charged by the New York Federal Reserve Bank,

RealGNP

real GNP (= GNP/Price),

RealInv

real investment (= Investment/Price),

RealInt

approximation to the real interest rate (= Interest - 100 * diff(Price)/Price).
