They should also be useful for students, researchers or practitioners who require a versatile platform for econometrics, statistics or general numerical analysis (e.g. numeric solutions to economic models or model simulation).

Python is a popular general purpose programming language which is well suited to a wide range of problems. Recent developments have extended Python’s range of applicability to econometrics, statistics and general numerical analysis. Python – with the right set of add-ons – is comparable to domain-specific languages such as R, MATLAB or Julia.
