TITLE
'NBERCYCLES': module to generate graph command (and optionally graph) timeseries vs. NBER recession dating

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)

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 1854-2006. 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.

Available from SSC for Stata 9.2: ssc install nbercycles
