Dear R Users:

We have splitted up the micEcon package into three packages:

  1. Package "maxLik" provides tools for maximum likelihood estimations (see http://www.maxLik.org).
  2. Package "sampleSelection" provides tools for estimating Heckman-type sample selection/generalized tobit models (see http://www.sampleSelection.org).
  3. Package "micEcon" contains the remainder, i.e. mainly tools for microeconomic demand and firm models, e.g. estimating the "Almost Ideal Demand System" or the "Symmetric Normalized Quadratic" / "Symmetric Generalized McFadden" profit function (see http://www.micEcon.org).

All these packages are available for download from CRAN and from their websites (see above).

Any comments and suggestions on these packages are welcome! Ott & Arne
