This is a great point that Roland brings up. More often than not, the papers
I read do not indicate which package they used in their analyses. It is also
disturbing to see that in some cases they may indicate that they used Stata,
but do not indicate that they used a user-written command within Stata!

On another note,  Bob referenced an automated forecasting program in R that
he used for his forecasts ( Do we
have a similar user-written program in Stata? I have not found one?

How can we explain that the total number of hits for all the packages show
such a peak in 2005? Do I understand correctly that the calculations are
done on publications that report which software that were used? Maybe this
practice is changing?
