A Code Archive for Economics and Econometrics

  • Dirk Eddelbüttel


This paper introduces CodEc, an Internet repository for computer programs written by, and for, economists and econometricians. CodEc provides a means to aid communication among researchers by using the Internet to share implementations of algorithms. After a description of the current content of CodEc, we discuss the use of CodEc to store and retrieve code from published articles.
