Computation of numerical standard errors in R

nse (Ardia and Bluteau, 2017) is an R package for computing the numerical standard error (NSE), an estimate of the standard deviation of a simulation result, if the simulation experiment were to be repeated many times. The package provides a set of wrappers around several R packages, which give access to more than thirty NSE estimators, including batch means estimators, initial sequence estimators, spectrum at zero estimators, heteroskedasticity and autocorrelation consistent (HAC) kernel estimators and bootstrap estimators. See Ardia and Bluteau (2017) for details. The full set of methods available in nse is summarized in Ardia et al. (2018) together with several examples of applications in econometrics and finance.

The latest stable version of nse is available at https://cran.r-project.org/package=nse.

The latest development version of nse is available at https://github.com/keblu/nse.
