Transportation Methods for Econometrics


TraME (Transportation Methods for Econometrics) is a C++ library for solving problems of equilibrium computation and estimation in consumer demand and matching frameworks via the Mass Transportation Approach.

  • Several popular random utility specifications, as well as models with transferable, non-transferable, and imperfectly transferable utility
  • Numerous equilibrium solvers, including the iterative proportional fitting procedure (IPFP) and the deferred acceptance algorithm
  • Maximum likelihood- and moment matching-based estimation
