Abstract

"This user guide provides a “hands-on” introduction to gravity modeling for applied policy researchers. It is designed to be used in conjunction with a dataset of bilateral trade in services available for free download, and readers are encouraged to replicate the results presented here using the Stata code provided in the text. Although some basic knowledge of Stata is required as a pre-requisite, more advanced commands and techniques are introduced in the text as necessary. Once the basic techniques have been mastered, readers are encouraged to extend the results presented here using alternative specifications and methodologies."
