Hello all,
We have just released the R package 'fedmatch' to CRAN. Following is a
brief description and some links for more information:
With an ever-expanding set of financial data providers, each covering many
of the same firms and entities, matching data sets that do not share common
identifiers has never been more important. *fedmatch* is a set of tools for
performing record linkage between two data sets. It allows for a variety of
different matching techniques, letting the user build a matching algorithm
for their specific application. Although *fedmatch* was designed with
economic data in mind (i.e. loans or companies), it is very flexible, so it
can be used for any matching problem. With *fedmatch*, a researcher or
analyst can quickly go from having 0 matches between two datasets to having
many. With more time and care, they can use more advanced techniques to
pull out even more matches.
