Replication data for: Reference Prices, Costs, and Nominal Rigidities

Sergio Rebelo, Nir Jaimovich & Martin Eichenbaum
We assess the importance of nominal rigidities using a new weekly scanner dataset. We find that nominal rigidities take the form of inertia in reference prices and costs, defined as the most common prices and costs within a given quarter. Reference prices are particularly inertial and have an average duration of roughly one year, even though weekly prices change roughly once every two weeks. We document the relation between prices and costs and find sharp...
