CoPS Archive

The archive is for the storage and distribution of a variety of materials such as technical notes, presentations, articles, student theses, and databases which do not fit into the CoPS Working Paper category.

Each archive item consists of a single ZIP file. This might contain a single file, such as a DOC or PDF file, or several different files (including HAR, TAB, XLS and other formats). If several files are included, or if there could be any doubt how to use or read the files, an explanatory file ReadMe.TXT should be included in the ZIP.

In some cases, instructions may refer to outdated Monash email addresses or URLs. New email addresses may be found here. Old URLs may be converted to new URLs by replacing "monash.edu.au/policy" by "copsmodels.com", as explained here.

Many of the archive items contain working examples which you can run by using BAT files (batch scripts). If you are unfamiliar with BAT scripts, please see these instructions.

More recent Archive items appear at the top of the list below. Guidelines for submitting items to the archive appear here.


TPMH0165 Example of how SAGEM may be used to do large IO multiplier analysis -- or to invert a matrix! In this case, we construct a simple world IRIO input-output model with 30 regions and 40 sectors. We compute the individual effects, on output of each sector in each region, of increasing final demand for each sector in each region by 1 unit. The answer is equivalent to calculating the (I-A) inverse matrix, where I and A are of size 1200*1200. However, because an LU decomposition is used, the process is quicker and more accurate than directly inverting the matrix. See file ReadMe.txt. Requires source code GEMPACK. Submitted by MH May 2017. download (151KB).

TPMH0160 Archive containing 39 flow charts or 'nest diagrams' used in various GEMPACK-related documents. The original files were created using the now obsolete ABC FlowCharter 2.0 and suffixed 'AF2'. Visio 2002 was used to convert 39 such AF2 files into the VSD file format used by MicroSoft Visio. Submitted by MH, November 2016. download (1.2MB).

TPMH0159 Example of how effective condensation (automatic substitution) allows GEMPACK to solve quite large models fairly quickly. In this partial equilibrium example, two farm activities (irrigated and non-irrigated crops) are modelled in each of 500,000 gridcell land areas, grouped into 20 regions which trade with each other. After condensing out large variables and equations, a 3-5-7 Gragg simulation takes around 1 minute. See file readme.txt. Submitted by MH, August 2016. download (35.7MB).

TPMH0158 Example of how GEMPACK may be used to do SAM multiplier analysis. The SAGEM program may be used to quickly perform dozens or hundreds of Johansen simulations at once. This makes SAGEM a useful helper in performing IO calculations and multiplier analysis. The example here calculates "SAM multipliers" with respect to demand shocks for a Brazilian city. Submitted by MH, July 2016. download (3.4MB).

TPGW0157 Preparation of the USAGE model, a dynamic model of the U.S. economy, required many enhancements to raw input-output data.

TPMH0152 A second example of a technique (described in item TPMH0147 below) of linking GTAP to a national CGE model. In this more complicated example, the national model has many more sectors than GTAP, and there is no simple mapping between the two sectoral classifications. See file readme.txt. Submitted JMH August 2015. download (5.2MB).

TPMH0151 Contains a Rundynam Archive to reproduce a simulation of a REDD scheme designed to compensate Nepal for halting deforestation in the Terai/Churia areas.

TPMH0147 PDF, TABLO code and data files to accompany 2003 GTAP conference presentation by Ferreira/Horridge: "Linking GTAP to National Models: Some Highlights and a Practical Approach". Essentially, the TAB file for the national model (a Brazilian version of ORANIG distinguishing 27 top-down regions within Brazil) is merely appended to the GTAP TAB file (luckily, the two models share very few names for coefficients/variables). A few equations to link the models are added. Then a closure swap deactivates the Brazil part of the GTAP model, substituting instead the ORANIG version of Brazil. It is not necessary that the ORANIG commodities and industries are the same as the GTAP sectors. See file readme.txt. Submitted JMH January 2015. download (620KB).

TPMH0132 You might wish, for debugging purposes, to see values of variables and coefficents AT EACH STEP of a multistep GEMPACK simulation (eg, a 3-step Euler). This archive item, using GTAP as an example, shows how to do it. See file ReadMe2.txt. Submitted MH June 2013. download (2.8MB).

TPMJ0131 Similar to archive item TPMH0129, this contains an example of replaceable CMF parameters used with the GTAP model. Multiple simulations show how the welfare loss from the tariff relates to the average value of trade elasticities. The welfare loss rises to a maximum as the Armington elasticity grows from zero, reaches a maximum and then declines as elasticities get very large. However, we find that GTAP results become unstable when these elasticities are small but non-zero. This odd kink was mentioned in a GTAP conference presentation (Shanghai, June 2013). You can run the examples even if your GEMPACK is older than Release 11.2. See file ReadMe.txt. Submitted MJ June 2013. download (3MB).

TPMH0130 RunDynam archive of simulations underlying a journal paper modelling Indirect Land Use Change in Brazil. See file ReadMe.txt. Submitted May 2013. download (5.7MB).

TPMH0129 Starting with Release 11.2, GEMPACK allows you to pass replaceable parameters from the command line to CMF files. This item contains a series of examples to show how you might use this facility -- and learn quite a lot about BAT files! You can run the examples even if your GEMPACK is older than Release 11.2. See file CMFparm.PDF. Submitted MH May 2013. download (6MB).

Submitted KP April 2013. download (1.5MB).

TPMH0126 Contains EXE file and data for South African TERM model used in TERM training courses 2011/12. The model is quite large and will not run under GEMSIM with a "limited size" licence. However, this EXE version will run with any GEMPACK licence. See file ReadMe.TXT. Submitted MH April 2013. download (3.4MB).

TPMH0125 In preparing data we may need to merge or compare two sources with different levels of sectoral detail. For example, we may wish to compare two vectors of exports, one from an IO table defined over set OSEC size 92 sectors, the other from the GTAP database defined over a set GSEC size 57. There may be no direct mapping from OSEC to GSEC, or vice-versa. The solution may be to define a 3rd, smaller, set of sectors (called, say, GROUP) with as many sectors as possible, such that each OSEC sector and each GSEC sector maps to (is contained within) just one GROUP. Then the mappings (from OSEC and GSEC to GROUP) let us aggregate both export vectors to the same GROUP size, allowing easy comparison. This archive item contains an example TABLO program showing how the task of creating the set GROUP (and the 2 mappings) can be automated. See file ReadMe.TXT. Submitted MH April 2013. download (255KB).

TPMH0101 Contains a paper by Mark Horridge and Ken Pearson entitled Systematic Sensitivity Analysis with Respect to Correlated Variations in Parameters and Shocks, together with various example TABLO programs. The standard Systematic Sensitivity Analysis (SSA) tools built into GEMPACK assume that all parameters or shocks are varying independently (ie, are not correlated) or together (ie, are fully correlated). As well, you can compute the sensitivity of model results with respect to variations in parameter or shocks, but not both at once.
