PPI Python Tutorials

This page provides access to the Python source code as well as to a package that can be installed via PyPI. The tutorials below explain how to use the Python version of the PPI model, as an alternative to the app.

These tutorials will take you from pre-processing raw data on development indicators and government spending to performing more sophisticated counterfactual analysis such as detecting bottlenecks.

You can view the tutorials via this page, and access the source code through GitHub. In the official repository, you will find that much of the content makes reference to the forthcoming book: Complexity Economics and Sustainable Development, which will come out later in 2023. For the time being, you can use the latest PPI paper as the main scientific reference.
