These methods apply to separable, one-to-one, bipartite matching models with perfectly transferable utility. The package is fully documented on my Github page. It contains:
- the Iterative Projection Fitting Procedures to solve for the stable matching in several variants of the Choo and Siow 2006 model, and for a class of nested logit models
- two estimation procedures for models with a semilinear surplus:
- a Poisson GLM estimator for the Choo and Show model
- a minimum distance estimator that applies more generally.
Here is also R code that runs IPFP in the Choo and Siow model.
My coauthor Alfred Galichon (NYU) and Keith O’Hara (Amazon) have developed the TraME library: a set of procedures for Transportation Methods for Econometrics. It allows the user to estimate a much broader class of models. TraME is available on Github. Here are some more specific links:
